Fuse-ionMarch 4th, 2010 in member junk
I found this old cast iron fuse (switch?) in a discount booth at an antique mall. I fell in love with the glass, rust and white coated cast iron and at $9 I couldn't pass it up. I wanted to use it in my decore so I cleaned it up and I thought about what I could do to make it a little more functional when suddenly a light went off (get it? hehe). I pulled down the handle to create a foot for the piece to stand steady on its own vertically. I found this little glass dish in my stash that fit perfectly on the handle (the perfect fuse-ion! :). I am currently using it on my sidetable in my living room to hold loose change but it would also be cool as a business card holder.
