Item details

This, I call the world's first power strip -- although today, it may be used as a display piece.
It's a collection of seven early plastic or Bakelite Depression-era electrical outlet extenders.
Plug one of these into a home electrical outlet, and from one outlet it gave you three.
This was not exactly a safe practice, but it was done.
I collected these little guys over the past 15 years and, while I don't recommend using them, I think they're just so beautifully designed!
Examples here were made by companies including Eagle, Meteor and General Electric.
All are for non-polarized plugs.
