This unusual bakelite darning mushroom has a battery operated light for darning in low light. When the top is unscrewed there is a battery compartment and metal plate with a light bulb in place. It would need a battery to make the torch work but we cannot guarantee that the item is in working order as we are not sure what battery it would take.
It is in good condition with faint scratches from use visible on the mushroom top, a slight imperfection visible at the edge of the dome and an area on the battery plate that looks a little corroded (see photographs). It measures approx. 4.5" in height and 3" in width at its widest point. It has 'DARN-A-LITE' and 'MADE IN ENGLAND' moulded into the underside of the mushroom top.
