Description

A vintage Strand theatre lamp consisting of a swiveling metal head with a powder coated, grey ‘plannished’ finish, 3 filter holders and a ribbed lens supported by a U-shaped bracket. The bracket is attached to an adjustable wooden tripod frame with black metal collars and wing nuts above pointed, black metal feet. The red electric cord is sympathetic to the period. This wonderfully stylish piece would make a superb addition to a range of interior settings. 

Condition Report

Good vintage condition – age-related wear to legs (scratches, chips, marks), some paintwork deterioration and some marks and dis-colouration to lamp head. All of these flaws are long-standing and give the piece an authentic vintage look, which in my opinion is much nicer than examples that have been completely restored. The lamp is in perfect working order having been sympathetically rewired and fitted with a brand new, GE T17 240V 500W theatre lamp bulb.
