1950'S , UK

Rare British 1950'S Vintage Desk Spot Light

This iconic example of British design was made by the Strand Lighting Company in their Covent Garden works in London’s West End.

The Patt 23 profile spotlight - also known as the 'Baby Spot' was the one of the work horses of the theatre industry from the 1950's to the 1980's.

Regrettably most have now been lost or destroyed and the survivors represent rare examples of an original British Industrial Design classic.

We were very lucky to acquire a few of these lights directly from the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London.

They were used for many years, lighting up famous performances including: The Sound Of Music, Cabaret and Les Miserables.

The light has been superbly engineered and features a ventilated die-cast body, 360 degree rotation, Internal reflector and Iconic design.

This Lamp features a extendable lens tube, featuring a Convex Lens.

The spot light has been professionally restored by a specialist British company. The finish is to an extremely high standard.

We take pride in the finished result as the light represents a unique and rare piece of design history.

Theatre light dimensions:

Length 24 cm's, Width 26 cm's, Height 30 cm's

The Light gives a wide beam spread for feature / architectural lighting and showing specific objects such as a work of art.

The Light is presented on a Cast steel base.

Ideal for displaying on a desk or book shelf.

The light has been professionally re-wired with 3 core quality silk braided vintage style lighting flex and fitted with a high quality on and off switch.

The light has been converted for home or office use and takes regular household light bulbs up to 300 watts, we also had a deluxe vintage style Bakelite plug fitted (BS1363/A).

This light has been fully pat tested by a certified tester for electrical safety and meets with the current safety requirements

The light is a rare and original Industrial design classic, passionately restored and looking for a new home.

The light looks great in modern or period homes.

This is an iconic statement piece that will appreciate in value over time.
