Antique 1890s Perkins Electrical Switch w/ Patent Lawsuit Tag ~ Vintage Electric:
$225

An unusual antique circa 1890's electrical switch approximately 4" in diameter at the base. Attached to the switcha fragment of a tag which I'm guessing indicates that it was an exhibit for some sort of patent infringementlawsuit in 1899. What's left of the tag reads "In the U.S. Pat .... In Interference .... Perkins & Miller .......Perkins Mod.... June 13th 89 ....". A quick look on line revealsthat there was a company called the Perkins Electrical SwitchManufacturing Co. that was in business in the 1890's in Bridgeport, CT. The metal tabs on the sides have bends and imperfections. Otherwise, the switch in very good condition. The paper tag is only a fragment, is extremelyworn, and is covered with scotch tape on the reverse.
