About 1947-1950

Noma Lights

Noma Lights,
1947 – 1950

Anyone remember these on the family tree? The heat caused the liquid to bubble. My parents had some that my mom refused to use (much to our disappointment) claiming it was a fire hazard.  The company began as American and moved to the UK in the 1930’s where they can still be found to be in the lighting business. Purchasing sets of these vintage lights now on eBay will cost plenty.
