A great American, this 60’s Bantam has such an intricate design, with so many vents and heat brushes, that all come together and give the lamp so much character.
This particular one has a long rear section which used to house a fan venting system to keep the 1000W globe cool inside the small chasis. My new industrial calico buff really came in handy on this one as most of the frame is metal instead of aluminium, which is alot harder to polish up to a mirror finish. The globe and bayonet have been changed to take regular household screw in globes, but I have retained the original on/off switch as it has as much character as the lamp.
Set on a hand made classic timber tripod with chromed metal linkages, this Bantam has become a real show stopper. A wonderful original vintage investment piece in your home or office.
