Draft production binder used in creation and revision of a 1929 catalogue of electric lighting fixtures and accessories, belonging to Lauritz W. Andersen, industrial designer and owner of The Waterbury Metal Wares Co. Andersen was a prominent inventor and designer of electrical socketry in the early 20th century; his career can be traced through patent office records, where over 60 items bear his name. He was with the firm of Plume and Atwood for approximately 25 years, leaving in 1915 to form Waterbury. The firm specialized in fixtures and other components for lamps and lighting ó including earlier methods (candles, lanterns). Sconces, candelabras, floor and desk lamps, as well as more specialized (piano, drafting) much in evidence. The clear, professional photographs, as well as sketches and notes within the binder provide a thorough glimpse into the early industrial design and marketing of electrical lighting.
