Franken Edison Light matches up with the light bulb by Edison, takes inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and has that Victorian Steampunk look going about it.

The movies placed two separate spheres that would catch lightning and send it through to Frankenstein. While these globes aren’t going to catch lightning, they do make a statement of style towards the form of Van de Graff generators used in the movies.
