25) 1960’s Strand 23 Vintage Theatre Light

Works by Marsel - Lamp No.25

A 1960’s Strand Theatre Light with spot control adjusters, converted into a beautiful custom home/office floor lamp.

Most of the Strand 23 lamps I have restored in the past have had one or more of the spot controllers broken on them and so were removed completely. This one had all four controllers intact so I decided to leave them in for a change. They allow you to adjust the size and shape of the beam.

Polished up to a beautiful mirror finish as usual, and the 500w lamp and bayonet removed and replaced with a regular bayonet now taking household screw in light globes. An easy in/line on/off switch has been installed into the cable and it has been mounted on a new designer chromed timber tripod. The tripod legs are adjustable to the desired height.

Another great piece of UK theatre history preserved and transformed into a unique eye catching designer lamp for the home or office.
