Rayovac 2 Cell Metallic Bullet Light with "Cloud Logo" on Barrell and Slide/Flash Flashlight, 1933

This is a Flashlight. It is dated 1933 and we acquired it in 2008. Its medium is metal, plastic, glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This is one in a series of streamlined Bullet models by Rayovac that premiered in 1933. Its design reflects the style of its era.
The museum actively collects in the area of personal electronic devices. The collection includes an impressive group of flashlights, many of which were on display in the museum’s exhibition, IDEO Selects: Works from the Permanent Collection. This flashlight is part of a group of electronics proposed for acquisition that would augment the collection's consumer product design category.

This object was donated by Max Pine. It is credited Gift of Max Pine and Lois Mander.
