Item details

Vintage brand new bakelite & glass double two-way switches looking for new homes to turn on.

Born from as early as the 1930s to 1950s and perhaps even beyond, these vintage bakelite switches provide the ultimate touch to an art deco, industrial or modernist home.

These cool switches feature glass and bakelite (resin), and offer a timeless look for the home, whether you gravitate to retro decor, forward-thinking fashions, or industrial-chic styles for modern lofts and houses. Simplicity and authenticity makes these light switches and plates stand out, and while it’s a small detail, it won’t go unnoticed!

The paper behind the glass can be replaced with your wall paper or other colors.

Suitable for until 230v 6A - ceramic back for optimal insulation

very well made.

Marked : Kronel Communtatore
Made in Italy
Circa 1940

We ship from Italy to most countries.

We always ship to your ETSY Address unless another is requested at the time of purchase.

We use Regular Priority Mail that is the cheapest way to ship worldwide from Italy.

At busy times of the year such as Christmas, Valentine's day etc the postage times can vary greatly and take much longer. We can never guarantee a delivery date unless you upgrade to Registered Mail which will include tracking and fast delivery and extra postage costs. For this we need to be contacted before your purchase.

All items are packed with great care. We will try to be eco-friendly with our packaging, so when possible we use recycled cardboards, papers and boxes, etc. If your purchase is a present and you need a special package, please let us know in advance.

Combined Shipping
We can combine shipping to decrease costs for you if we are contacted before you place the order. Shipping from Italy is the same price from 1kg (2.2pounds) to 2kgs (4.4pounds) so if you order something that weighs 1.1kg it will cost the same as receiving something that weighs 2kg. In this way you can save on shipping costs.
