AUTHENTIC STRAND1950s BRITISH STUDIO FLOOR LIGHT
A RARE BRITISH THEATRE LIGHT CONVERTED AND RESTORED INTO A DESIGNER HOME FLOOR LAMP
Originally designed in Covent Garden, London at the Strand headquarters in the early 1950s era.
We were very lucky to acquire a few of these lights direct from the Theatre Royal, West End, London.
They were used for many years, lighting up famous musicals such as the king and I, my fair lady, camelot, hello dolly and the great waltz.
The light has been superbly engineered, and features a die-cast ventilated body, 360 degree rotation, adjustable lens tube and an internal anodized reflector.
These lights are now prized for their iconic style and British design.
The spot light has been professionally polished to a bright mirror finish by a specialist British company that provides polishing for Rolls-Royce. The finish is to an extremely high standard.
We take pride in the finished result as the lights represent a unique and rare piece of design history.
Theatre light dimensions:
Lens 8cms, Length 35cms”, Width 21cms, Height 23cms
The Light gives a clear-cut soft beam that is ideal for feature lighting and showing specific objects such as a work of art.
The Light is presented on a telescopic matching tripod.
The tripod is made ofhighly polished chromeand features adjustable height and double bracing for extra strength. The Tripod also festures die cast wingnuts.
The height range is adjustable from 83cm to 126cm and is ideal for all floor types.
The light has been professionally re-wired with 3 core quality silk braded vintage style lighting flex and fitted with a high quality CE approved inline foot dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch allows for the light to be turned on or off with the press of a button, or to change the brightness from a warm glow to bright spot light with the sliding control.
The dimmer also features a night location neon indicator.
The light has been converted for home or office use and takes regular household light bulbs up to 100 watts, we also had a deluxe vintage style Bakelite plug fitted (BS1363/A).
This light has been fully pat tested by a certified tester for electrical safety and meets with the currentBritish safety requirements.
The light is a rare and original British Industrial design classic, passionately restored and looking for a new home.
The light looks great in modern or period homes or for the finishing touch in an executive office.
This is an iconic statement piece that will appreciate in value over time.
