An original 1950’s Richard H. Barton of Sydney theatre light. The first I have come across and one of the most beautiful lamps I have had the pleasure of restoring.
Passionately restored into a timeless collectors investment piece and presented on a beautiful classic teak timber & chrome tripod.
The restoration was a challenge to say the least. The entire lamp had to be carefully disassembled down to the last nut and bolt. Each exterior piece was then painstakingly cut and polished to achieve a high gloss sheen. Most of this lamp is made of metal, so once polished the metal surfaces were hard poly coated to protect them and prevent rust.
The 500Watt globe and bayonet were removed and replaced with a screw in bayonet. The lamp now takes regular screw in energy saver globes. The original Bakelite AC plug was retained and a new classic look switch was installed. All the original badges were retained and hand polished.
An original piece of Australian theatre history to own and present in your home or office.
