I didn't know that Colt Firearms was in the electrical business. Anyone got an idea of the vintage?

Seems to me we had some pictures of those somewhere...

Searching back between 10 and 20 years I found these other Colt Items:

Old Colt Armory Pics

Seems to me that I have seen these in 1940's or late 30's vintage houses. I just have never thought to take pictures of them.

One of these days need to photograph the Colt electrical products I have, the only other oddity is a safety switch made by Meyers in SF CA.
