Item details

Recently I was lucky enough to stumble upon a box of vintage vacuum tubes. There are enough for me to play with in my own art projects and some to share with you too!

What are vacuum tubes?

Vacuum Tubes (aka - Electron Tube or Thermionic Valve) are funky glass tubes that conduct electricity and were used in early radios, televisions and amplifiers. These little gems are becoming increasingly rare due to the fact that they are made from glass. Most appliances that used these tubes were pitched when they went bad and the tubes went out with them.

I am offering an assorted set of 5 small tubes which measure anywhere from 1.25" - 2.25" in length. They all have the cool little electrodes protruding from the bottom and are made from glass. The inside "guts" may vary due to manufactures and uses.

These tubes would make a great addition to Tim Holtz style Configuration collages; Steampunk Jewelry and Art; Cyberpunk Art; and Altered Art projects of all sorts!


FAQs

If possible I will try to accommodate your requests. Please feel free to contact me with requests.

Etsy's shipping calculator is fairly unpredictable when estimating shipping. If you feel that the shipping on your order exceeds what you would normally pay please contact me. I can provide a private listing with the correct postage or if you choose I will refund excess postage (over 1.00). I package my items with great care. Each item is wrapped with bubble wrap (when appropriate), tissue or tucked in a cellophane wrapper. I try to ensure that each and every item arrives at it's destination in perfect condition. It's not required but insurance is strongly suggested as I have no control what happens to your package once it is in the hands of the post office.
