<<< SHOE BOX BODY, REPRODUCTION >>>. For sale, this new reproduction light-up body for shoe box globes.
These units are cast from an original glass we happened to be lucky enough to get our hands on. A high performance mold was used; all the details of the original top were transferred in very fine detail. We make these one at a time in low volume.
To my knowledge there is no other source for reproduction shoe box bodies other than us. Since we cast from an original top, you will have no issue placing original lenses on these bodies.
Lenses are not included, it is just the body. The material we use is UV resistance transparent urethane plastic.Its a top of the line and very expensive urethane specifically formulated to simulate glass. After the initial curing is complete, each top is fired in a kiln for several hours to achieve maximum strength and durability. We then buff and shine the tops too. The tops light up amazingly well, hard to capture in pictures. An artifact of molding is that we need to trim the very bottom of the body where the urethane enters the mold, but its not in an area that's visible anyway.
