42) 1940’s Copper Naval Flood Light

Works by Marsel - Lamp No.42

An original 1940’s WW2 Naval copper flood light, restored into a unique designer home/office floor lamp.

Here’s a great find. These old copper flood lights were commonly used on the decks of the 1940’s naval war ships and at base camp sites. They were not this beautiful when in service though. Many layers of paint and grit had to be removed from this old lamp to get to the raw copper. Once paint stripped and cleaned, it was then thoroughly machine polished to a magnificent glow.

The 500watt globe and bayonet were removed and replaced to take regular household energy saver globes. A long 3 core AC earthed cable has been installed with a new vintage style inline on/off switch to suit.

It is mounted on a beautiful designer classical tripod. The tripod legs are solid teak and are adjustable to the desired height.

Alot of man hours have gone into the restoration of this amazing piece and it is being offered on auction with no reserve. A piece of history to proudly display in your home or office and a great investment as it will only appreciate in value as time goes by.
