The King of the Switchable Jungle
The bright and cheerful Switchables Lion stained glass night light cover will be your mane choice, and we're not lyin'.
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...?
The male lion's mane gives it one of the most-recognized faces in the animal kingdom, and it is well that ancient people learned to recognize lions: They were the the largest widespread land animal until clever humans eclipsed them 10,000 years ago. In their day lions were the king of much more than the jungle, roaming most of Africa, a swath of Eurasia from western Europe to India, and most of the Americas from the Yukon to Peru. Nowadays they're a "vulnerable" species limited to designated reserves and national parks in sub-Saharan Africa.
People have been picturing lions since the cave paintings of the Stone Age in sculptures, in paintings, on national flags, and in cultural works, all leading up to our fused glass nightlight cover.
