Davis Metal Fixture 1930

Davis metal fixture was the forerunner to the Little Nut Co. You can easily tell the difference between this and a Little Nut version by simply looking at the embossing around the lip of the base. If it is a Davis it will say so.

This is one of many small jiggle slide vendors with lantern style globes made by various manufacturers. This model holds some extra significance for me because it was made in my home state of Michigan. These are not rare but the Davis model is much harder to find than the Little Nut version.

I have seen this in all silver and in silver with green or red paint around the base. This one is all original with a nice old patina.
