Another great UK made Strand pattern 23 production theatre light, passionately restored into a magnificent unique home tripod floor lamp.
These Strand 23’s are by far the most elegant of the vintage 50’s and 60’s stage lights and have fast become the most requested lamp by customers. This particular one had a very thick initial coat of primer and paint on it, so when stripped back, the aluminium was very clean and has polished up a treat.
20 hours of machine cut and polish have gone into the final finish to produce a brilliant reflective sheen. The inner vent covers were sprayed with 24kt Gold dust. The 500Watt globe and bayonet have been removed and replaced with a screw in bayonet to take regular household energy saver globes. The back just pops open to change the globe. New cotton weave AC cable and a classic styled on/off switch were installed as well.
It has been mounted on a designer teak chromed nautical tripod. The legs are height adjustable to it can be used as both a floor or table lamp. The centre rod also adjust upward for extra height if required.
Another wonderful piece of UK theatre history, restored and preserved, ready to proudly present in your home or office.
