Price's Night Light vending machine

Post by treefrog »

I forgot to add this vending machine which sold in September at BBR for £1100 plus commission. Don’t remember seeing it in the results page, but a cute little machine obviously designed for the hotel market. From the British Automatic Supply Syndicate Ltd

Well done for posting that. It is in September's Sale Results and I also intended to post about it in the Forum as it's something I don't think we've seen before.
Prices Night Lights Vending Machine. 10.6 x 6.2 x 3.2ins - minus the protruding candle fitment at the front. Walnut cased cabinet featuring four night lights with a one penny coin slot and lever to press for release. Hinged front panel (original key) plus several applied panes of lettering - small [label] at the bottom says ARGLES PATENT. Opens up to reveal the internal mechanism with an instructions sheet fixed to the inside back panel. Two holes in back panel to enable fixture to a wall. In good working order. An extraordinary and exceptionally rare offering. 9.5/10

Great little machine - and quite a price at just under £1300 inc commission and VAT

This seems to be the one: "Night Lights" Search - Advanced - Arena - Phrase search.
Tolerant search also works.

Prices also made a candle vendor but that was more like a large polo mint vendor in style. This night lite vendor is a great machine but seems a little over-engineered don't you think?
Prices are still the UK's biggest candle makers (and before BP says anything I don't mean in length) and operate from what was originally their night light factory on the Thames in Battersea South London, the product for the vendor would have been made there.
I really like the final sentence of the operator's instructions concerning the complicated method of mounting the machine
