Back of Contactum socket outlet


This is a Contactum brand switched socket outlet. It has a bakelite faceplate and still has the original two pin plug and box. The face plate size is 130mm long and 80mm wide, the contact block is 20mm deep.

The face plate and plug are in excellent condition. There is a small chip to the china contact block on the back but this does not affect the use of the socket and it cannot be seen from the front.

The patent shown on the back was granted in 1937, this relates to the switching mechanism. These socket outlets were probably made for some while after that date.

This is sold as a collectable item only and is NOT to be used unless it is checked beforehand by a qualified electrician.
