Another magnificent General Electric 1940’s solid copper naval spot light restoration.
This was a very difficult piece to restore as it is a much older model than the previous ones I have restored. Many layers of old paint and residue had to be painstakingly peeled back before the polishing could begin. Many days of cut and polish went into the final finish.
The 1000 Watt light globe and bayonet were removed and replaced with a regular household fitting and a new cotton weave cable and switch installed.
It has been mounted on an antique Miller surveyors tripod. The tripod was also dismantled and the linkages polished up to shine. The tripod linkages on these are also very heavy duty, required to hold up the heavy lamp head.
Another beautiful piece of history to proudly present in your home or office.
