I love lamp! 🤓💡 Slowly I’ve been restoring my collection of antique lighting and the trench art pieces are among some of my favorites. So much history and so many stories are illuminated with the flick of a switch. And while this World War I ‘Victory Lamp’ was mass produced, the story it has to tell is no exception.⠀
The lamps were produced from actual 75mm shells that were manufactured for the war and are the remnants of a series of massive explosions at the T.A. Gillespie Company Shell Loading Plant in Sayreville, New Jersey that started on October 4, 1918 (about one month prior to the war’s end). At the time it was one of the largest munitions factories in the world.⠀
The explosions lasted for three days and more than 12 million pounds of high explosives would erupt (estimated to be enough ammunition to supply the Western Front for six months). The entire town was evacuated and the explosions could be felt over 20 miles away, even breaking windows in Manhattan.⠀
The cause of the initial explosion is still unknown to this day and much speculation surrounded the event. An accident or sabotage? Regardless, it is one of the largest man-made, non-nuclear explosions in history. In the end, more than 300 buildings were destroyed, approximately 100 people were killed and many more were injured. Debris from the incident is still being found today. ⠀
The aftermath left unspent artillery shells strewn about the area. Rather than discard them, a nearby manufacturer of iron and bronze interior goods, Snead & Co., saw the opportunity to use the unspent shells by making lamps to commemorate the end of the Great War (which happened only one month after the catastrophe). It’s also interesting to note that Snead & Co. was instrumental in making America’s largest libraries possible through the use of an innovative iron shelving system that could hold more weight than previous wooden bookshelves.⠀
In 1919, the lamps could be purchased for $18.40 (on a payment plan of $3 down, $3/month for four months and a final $3.40). And illumination options included kerosene, gas (gas line) or electrified (by 1925 only half the homes in the US had electricity). Cont’d below...
2001 - Queen Elizabeth II - ½ dollar (50 cents) - The Bahamas
I can certainly tell you that banknotes are harder to photograph than clubs. I don't own a large number of banknotes . But the ones I do have, I'm keen to share with you. This is a very pretty note in terms of its artistic design. The colour pallet used captures the sparkling sea and the warm luscious air one could expect to find in the Bahamas. It has moderately successful security features and makes heavy use of itaglio ink. There are some random fibres that appear under UV light. A strong watermark is also apparent. The portrait of Her Majesty the Queen of the Bahamas is quite different and I feel isn't entirely representative of her as we see her.
This is amongst the first manx coins that do not make directly obvious use of manx symbolism on their coinage, I think that's a nice touch it's an intriguing little coin with rather dramatic artwork on the reverse. The rough seas and the castle of refuge have translated very well into the sculpture and engraving of the coin
