The blue Anchor is bonded to a red-and-white chevron background that provides a bold contrast.
The fused-glass process enables Switchables to create a new generation of nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered like traditional Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs with no metal borders. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel.
You can identify a fused-glass Switchables cover by its "SF" item number. Traditional Switchables start with "SW".
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.
Are you curious...?
Have you always thought they were saying "anchors away!"? Nope, it's "anchors aweigh!" and it means that the anchor is hanging from its rope or chain (weighed) rather than resting on the bottom. Once the anchor reaches the surface it's "stowed." When you "weigh anchor" you're lifting it so that your ship can get under way, although those two terms aren't really related, and it doesn't matter how much the anchor weighs. "Anchors away" would mean that you're dropping the anchor, and isn't a nautical term, but you can keep saying it to confuse people.
The familiar anchor shape that appears on this Switchables cover is called the Admiralty Pattern, or simply "the Fisherman." It's been around for centuries. The curved pointy arms at the bottom (flukes) dig into the seabed. The smaller straight arms at the top (the stock) prevents the anchor from tipping over too far.
