43) The Francis Atlas Search Light

Works by Marsel - Lamp No.43

An original 1940’s Francis naval search light, mounted on an antique tripod featuring a designer world globe as the centre piece.

My greatest lamp project to date and by far the most impressive looking lamp I have ever created. The lamp head is an original 1940’s British made Francis brass search light. It has been lovingly polished and the bayonet changed to take regular household light globes 120volt or 240 volt.

Mounted on a vintage original surveyors tripod with solid brass linkages to suit the lamp and mohogany stained timber adjustable legs. The tripod linkages are heavy duty to support the 10kg search light and 5kg globe.

The centre piece is a magnificently large designer world globe made up of delicately placed crystals and precious stones to form the countries. It rotates on all directions and beautifully compliments the naval theme of this custom lamp.

Fully assembled the entire lamp weighs over 20kg. The lamp head and globe are easily removable for safe transport.

A lot of man hours have gone into the creation of this unique, one of a kind, vintage original masterpiece. A great piece of British naval history to present in your home or office.
