Ivory bakelite with EMELEC logo. Pictures and text provided by Loz Pavier.
A very early plug in Ivory Bakelite by Ediswan. It is branded EMELEC - East Midlands Electricity Board - and would have been provided by themselves either to a household, on a rental appliance, or made available to buy.
The lid is held on with two screws, both held in place with a paper ring to prevent loss.
The plug is an aesthetically pleasing rounded shape, however the flanges to prevent finger ingress to the pins, are extremely small.
