Once part of Graham’s collection of Findings, a vintage stock cube tin is to become a table lamp.
Beefex Products Ltd of London England was incorporated in 1934 with the rather splendid sounding address of Number One Watergate, LONDON, EC4Y 0AE .
In November 2000 the company was dissolved, a fitting end perhaps.
Whether or not these cubes would have made a wartime substitute for stockings is not certain.
Visit the exhibition to see the finished piece.
