Rare Resistance Box in good condition.

Antique resistance boxes, artifacts from the mid 20th century, represent a significant chapter in the history of electrical engineering. Crafted with precision and elegance, these devices served educational, laboratory, and industrial purposes by allowing users to control electrical resistance in circuits. The sturdy wooden or metal casings housed a series of resistors, manipulated by switches or dials. While once integral to electrical experimentation and manufacturing processes, antique resistance boxes now captivate collectors and enthusiasts, providing a tangible link to the roots of modern electrical science. Their enduring appeal lies in the combination of functional history, precision engineering, and aesthetic charm, preserving the legacy of a pioneering era.

For truly bespoke gifts, please view our antiques catalogue and email us with your idea. With your input, we can price it up and give you a timescale.

Due to the nature of our store, a great deal of research has gone into every item as we do not want to damage or change pieces that have historical significance in their current state. Therefore if any of our pieces are listed incorrectly, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Because we are a small, family-run business, at the moment our projects are relatively small scale and we cannot cater to extremely large custom orders. However, we pride ourselves on our finished products’ quality therefore will not sell objects in any other condition than advertised.
