Antique Vintage Oak Boxed Science Electricity Circuit Project Desktop Collectable

This would either have been made in the classroom or a pupil project. The handmade oak box with a sliding base conceals the wiring ready to attach one wire via the aid of the steel paperclip to the negative end of the battery and wrap the other end of the same wire around the base of the bulb. Attach the other wire to the positive end of the battery with the aid of another paper clip with electrical tape and to the base of the bulb, Completing the circuit and lighting the bulb. You can learn basic facts about electricity by wiring a simple flashlight bulb to a battery. When you wire the circuit together, current from the battery flows through the wire to the light bulb, lighting it. The circuit is simple, inexpensive and completely safe; you can find the parts at any hardware store. The securely attached brass column on top of the box holds the wiring for the finial light bulb. I would not say that the wiring is still safe or that the bulb would work but the principle is still evident. Super bit of social educational history.
