1950'S England

Strand Electric 1950'S Vintage Floor Lamp

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

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.

The light has been superbly engineered and is made from cast Aluminium, It 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 Light gives a wide beam spread for feature / architectural lighting and showing specific objects such as a work of art.

This light represents a unique and rare piece of design history.

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 professionally re-wired with 3 core quality silk braded vintage style lighting flex and fitted with a high quality CE approved inline foot dimmer switch.

The dimmer switch allows for the light to be turned on or off with the press of a button, or to change the brightness from a warm glow to bright spot light with the sliding control.

The dimmer also features a night location neon indicator.

The light has been converted for home or office use and takes regular household light bulbs up to 100 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

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

Maintenance / User Guide

We believe good design is not a luxury; its an essential.........
