Comes in original company box. This neat stand alone advertising display lights up and rotates. Originally made to display Bulova Caravelle Illuminated wrist watches in the 1950's. Features 4 simple metal hooks to hold watches. Can hold necklaces and bracelets and use as a jewelry display stand.Navy blue velvet flocked, thick cardboard shade cover. Ad printed white heatproof shade with metal fan cut top. Fiber board on back of signage. Possibly laminated Formica on front. Triangular shape stand has 3 metal rubber tipped feet. Comes with an incandescent light bulb. Has standard old style electric wired plug and it works. To operate, remove the corrugated paper core from middle of shade and remove the red cover on top of pin. Very important that the shade sits evenly and directly centered on pin in order to "float". It's a bit tricky but you must ensure entire piece is on a true level flat surface to make it work. The heat from the bulb will make the shade rotate at a decent flow (not slow, not fast) to easily read the advertisement.
