The 7H107 Supervisor & the
had the light and the translucent dial for it to shine through.
Supervisor (below) had a steel dial with numerals seen on the Snug.
The rear case of my ivory Warden (above) is walnut bakelite and
apparently painted ivory at the factory (sorry, I ever doubted you, Kid!).
Whether that was due to some production mistake or some Wartime pressure
we may never know. Mine was a $10 Ebay rescue. I got
it broken, missing a knob and shutoff switch and full of roaches.
I was gonna turn around and sell it but once I had it cleaned and working
and complete, I couldn't part with it. I added a black, paper diffuser
as seen in the Twinkle but only in
the front. I like the warm glow the lamp gives the rest of the case.
SUPERVISOR is an attractive alarm designed
in plastic. In an ivory-color case as shown, it sells for $3.95.
In a brown case, it is $3.50. A practical gift for the most discriminating.
|Walnut bakelite Warden showing the pre-War red-brown that is
just my favorite plastic. I wish everything was made out of
this stuff. The bezel on this one was brass-plated zinc or something
but the bezel on my ivory one was still solid brass. The case screws
on both were brass-plated steel too.
