Search For Missing Chandelier

Have You Seen This Chandelier?
Believed to be in someone’s home or barn, the chandelier is described as brass and glass composition and measures 8 to 10 inches tall and 40 inches in diameter. The brass metal work has an intricate floral leaf pattern. It has one large globe in the center set below ten smaller globes. Manufactured for either electric or gas illumination, all ten smaller globes are topped by a small gas fixture.

The chandelier has been missing from the Missoula County Courthouse in Montana for over 50 years. Parties involved in the restoration of the courtroom where the chandelier went missing would like to return it to its original location. An exact replication of the missing chandelier would cost $20,000 to $30,000.

Additional details about this missing chandelier are available in the local newspaper.  Anyone with information about the whereabouts of this fixture is asked to contact courthouse officials as soon as possible.

Pet Lighting! Who Knew?

Squeaker Poochlight | McKinney, TX Electrician | Licensed Master Electrician | Nisat Electric

Poochlight LED Collars & Leashes
Not our area of expertise but interesting nonetheless. Turns out there are LED leashes and collars available to help keep you and your pet safe after dark. Since Nisat Electric customers are like family, we wanted to share more information about these potentially life saving products with you. Be sure to check out the cute video below!

We recently stumbled upon the Poochlight by Squeaker. They make both collars and leashes that incorporate LED technology for illumination so that both are brightly lit in the dark. The most obvious and potentially life saving benefit is greater visibility, thus reducing the likelihood of being hit by a car or cyclist.

The collar by itself would be a very useful tool in locating pets that take advantage of an open door and run off for a solo jog around the neighborhood! This actually happened to me recently when I was pet-sitting for a neighbor; unfortunately, Harley was not wearing one of these glow in the dark collars at the time and it took two hours to find the furry Lothario visiting a few four-legged ladies way down the street!

The Poochlight comes with a thirty-day guarantee. It has dual pair LEDs in optical fiber strips and features three nighttime flashing modes. The battery life lasts over ten hours and includes rapid USB charging capability.

Have you used the Poochlight? Post a comment or drop us a note and let us know if it lives up to its potential!

Additional Poochlight Information

  • Squeaker’s website.
  • Live demonstration of Poochlight in action during this news interview with veterinarian Dr. Chris Brown (aka Bondi Vet).
  • Product review by Pretty Fluffy, The Ultimate Guide for the Discerning Pet Owner.

Just For Fun

Visually Stunning Lighting by Alison Berger Glassworks

Architecturally Inspired Masterpieces
Every now and then Nisat Electric has the opportunity to install truly unique lighting. Designed by extraordinary artists for the sophisticated eye and, more often than not, the unlimited budget, the phrase “light fixture” is insufficient for such masterpieces. We recently discovered the work of Dallas native Alison Berger; her blown glass light fixtures are visually stunning.
