Behold! My party light! When this baby goes on, the shenanigans begin, boy!
This is an old salesman’s display box, showing a variety of industrial-grade switches that Square D (you know, the circuit breaker guys) made. Some are designed to light up, some don’t. That red one in the center lights up when you press it. Kind of like a Fisher Price toy I might have had when I was a toddler. These buttons are all worth a lot individually, so it’s well worth the $35 I paid for it on ebay, no matter what my wife thinks. Ol’ Joseph Cornell’s got nothin’ on this boy.
This was actually kind of a challenge to me. My mission was to make this as visually interesting a pic as I can, without sacrificing too much realism or detail. I’m not sure I’m done with it but here are some of the results so far. Click on them for a 1024px wide image to open in a new window.
