THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE SET OF KINGSTON CRYSTALITES CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS FROM THE 1940`s!! THEY WERE ORIGINALLY MANUFACTURED IN HULL, YORKSHIRE, IN THE NORTH EAST OF ENGLAND. I HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY SEVERAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE REMINISCING ABOUT THEIR CHILDHOOD AND WHAT LOVELY MEMORIES THESE LIGHTS HAVE BROUGHT BACK!! THE LIGHT CLIPS ONTO YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE, AFTER PLUGGING INTO THE MAINS ELECTRICITY, THE LIGHT BULB IN THE BOTTOM CUP WARMS THE LIQUID IN THE GLASS TUBE ABOVE, AND IT PRODUCES BUBBLES SIMILAR TO A MINIATURE LAVA LAMP, ONLY BETTER!! WHEN YOU FIRST PLUG THEM INTO THE MAINS SOCKET, WAIT FOR A FEW MINUTES FOR THE LIGHT BULBS TO WARM UP! THESE LIGHTS ALWAYS WORK BETTER IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION! IF THEY HAVEN`T STARTED BUBBLING AFTER FIVE MINUTES, VERY CAREFULLY REMOVE THE GLASS TUBE, GIVE IT A QUICK SHAKE UP AND DOWN, AND THEN VERY CAREFULLY REPLACE IT! ALTHOUGH AS YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, THEY WILL BE POSTED WITHOUT THE PLUG. YOUR 13 AMP PLUG SHOULD HAVE A 3 AMP FUSE! ON LIGHTS THIS OLD IT IS ALWAYS ADVISED TO HAVE THEM TESTED BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. THESE LIGHTS ARE VERY DELICATE AND SHOULD BE TREATED ACCORDINGLY AND WITH GREAT CARE, PLEASE REMEMBER THEY ARE FROM THE 1940`s AND THE GLASS TUBES ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET!! I HAVE A FEW ORIGINAL TUBES AND A FEW ORIGINAL BULBS FOR SALE, I ALSO HAVE SOME OF THE CHEAPER REPLACEMENT BULBS FOR SALE, BUT THERE`S NOT MANY LEFT!! I HAVE SEVERAL SPARES LEFT, IF YOU NEED ANYTHING JUST LET ME KNOW AND I`LL SEE WHAT I CAN DO!! WHEN SLOTTING THE GLASS TUBE INTO THE PLASTIC HOLDER, REMEMBER THE BOTTOM OF THE TUBE SHOULD TOUCH THE TOP OF THE LIGHT BULB, DON`T PUSH IT DOWN TOO HARD OR YOU WILL SMASH THE BULB, AS I DID! THE PLASTIC CUP COMES APART IN TWO HALVES SO IT`S EASY TO REPLACE THE LIGHT BULB! AS YOU WOULD EXPECT, THE CONDITION OF THE BOX AFTER SEVENTY NINE YEARS HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS, BUT THAT IS ONLY TO BE EXPECTED! I HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED TO CLEAN ANY OF THE PLASTIC CUPS OR ATTEMPTED TO REPAIR THE BOX, I WILL LEAVE THAT UP TO THE LUCKY WINNER, BUT AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES, THE LIGHTS ARE NICE AND BRIGHT!! THESE CRYSTALITES LIGHTS WILL MAKE A FANTASTIC GIFT OR A FABULOUS CHRISTMAS PRESENT!! EVERY CARE WILL BE TAKEN IN WRAPPING THESE LIGHTS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN UNWRAPPING THEM! THEY WILL BE TESTED AGAIN BEFORE BEING WRAPPED, BOXED AND DISPATCHED! ONCE THESE CRYSTALITES ARE SET UP THEY WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT DEAL OF PLEASURE AND WILL ADD TO THE JOY OF YOUR CHRISTMAS!!
