I am proud to present...
1973 "Do it with the Light on" Light Switch Wall Plate Reproduction
Apparently this was the very first ELO promotional item (presumably that's referring to the USA), and the originals are very rare and expensive.
I made a couple replicas to decorate my apartment with; they turned out quite nicely and I had a lot of fun doing them, so I thought I'd offer some up to a wider audience as well.
Just like the originals they are standard US toggle light switch size, 2.75 inches x 4.5 inches, with 2 3/8 inches between the screw holes.
My apologies to everyone outside of the US--it seems that the dimensions aren't very compatible with UK/European light switches, I'm not sure about other parts of the world, so I doubt they could work in your homes without some serious retrofitting. And apparently it's standard for your light switches and their covers to be sold as a unit together?! (Do the covers even come off??) Anyway, that makes it rather cost-prohibitive and possibly difficult or impossible for me to engrave UK-style light switches... but if there's enough interest, I would consider doing some light switch surrounds in a similar manner. In the meantime, I'd still be happy to send you one of these just because they look cool!
may will be small variations and/or imperfections, as they are all individually laser-engraved and hand-painted. The paint does seem to hold up just fine to a wiping with soap and water or gentle household cleaners. Screws will be included.
I'm asking $12 plus shipping--which is looking to be approximately $5 within the US, $15 international, but I will charge accordingly once I know the exact rates.
Please PM me if you're interested!
