Forest Fire Lamp

Forest Fire Lamp – 316 glyphs, 4 weights.

Gritty retro sans, featuring extremely tall caps and low descenders, based on the famous comic book ads.

These kitschy lamps featured painted scenes of a raging forest fire on a celluloid tube. As the light bulb inside heated up, the heat would rise through vents in the top of the unit causing the scene to gently spin, creating the illusion of motion. Quite popular from around the 40’s right into the 70’s.

I’m pretty sure my own parents had one of these on display in our house when I was a kid.
