Retirement Plaques, Antique Meter Lamps, etc...

The Arcman Corporation, a small Pennsylvania firm, is marking its 35th year as the world’s only business dedicated to the preservation and marketing of antique electric house meters as old-technology artifacts. Its product line incorporates brass-trimmed meters nearly a century old, restored and crafted into a series of executive desk and table lamps. When switched on, the animated meters record the lamp bulbs’ energy use.
