These old machinery isolation springs made perfect small accent or night lights. They had original paint in green or blue, and we preserved that paint and the rusty patina with a clean, wipe-able finish. We mounted them onto small metal plates for stability, and wired them with high-quality sockets with full dimming function. Cloth covered wire and an antique reproduction plug speak to the age and history of the springs. An Edison reproduction bulb with spiral filament was the perfect topper.
