#tbtPrimelite: Another blast from Primelite’s past! Today we’re again highlighting our “Juvenile Gems” selection of 1970s children’s globes. An earlier #tbt of children’s lights featured “Raggedy Ann” and clowns. This later 1970’s catalog introduced additional characters including the “Tin Man,” inspired by “The Wizard of Oz.” Our children’s lights were also now available as ceiling/hanging and desk lamps.
Primelite continued working with a local artist who hand painted each face/globe. The fixtures were then hand constructed and assembled in our warehouse. These fixtures were primarily used in children’s bedrooms and were popular throughout the ’70s decade.
#tbtPrimelite: Now here’s a real blast from the past! Our selection of 1970s globes included these hand painted character globes. Inspired by the children’s doll “Raggedy Ann” and clowns, these globes were Primelite’s first foray into childrens lighting fixtures.
Working with a local artist, who hand painted each globe, our “Raggedy Ann” and “Harlequie” and “Halequina” clown characters were popular children’s themes. Raggedy Ann was, and is, a classic, and clowns have always been favorite characters with children. Primary used in childrens bedrooms these fixtures were popular throughout the ’70s decade.
#then&now: While these hand painted character face globes were Primelite’s first children’s lighting fixtures, we’ve continued to offer childrens fixtures through the years. As styles and themes have changed, so have the themes of our childrens fixtures. In 2015 our childrens light fixtures have a sports related theme.
