The timber vintage electrical volt meter was used by electricians to measure voltage in all types of equipment. This gauge would have been manufactured around the 1940’s. The item number handwritten on the front would suggest that this particular meter was issued to a Government Department such as; the Electricity Trust of South Australia (ETSA) or the Post Master General (PMG) - both of which have now taken their place in South Australian history. The voltage meters from Salvage sell for over $220 alone! ... if they can be found!

My journey into Steampunk was a natural progression from collecting and restoring all types of mechanical antiques, vintage machinery and working on steam engines, historic aircraft and old cars.
Creating a range of tables and table and standing lamps, I use a range of found objects and pipe as well as rare, collectors pieces. Every lamp is one of a kind - a unique, individual hand crafted item.
