This is a very rare and iconic theatre light, 'very Hollywood'. It is rather special in that it bears the makers name name CREMER across the front.
The light has a polished aluminium optic with original Fresnel glass lens and is mounted upon an original antique, refurbished, waxed oak tripod, with aluminium and brass detailing.
It has been fully rewired with an antique style bakelite black torpedo rocker switch and 3 metres of luminescent 'Sheffield Steel' grey antique style braided, twisted fabric cable (3 Core, 3 Amps) and has a new bakelite E27 earthed lampholder. All electrical fitting and accessories have been made in the UK.
The light articulates up and down via a side bakelite knob (which also bears the name 'A.E.Cremer Paris', around its circumference) on its integral bracket. The spread or amount of light can be adjusted via the two brass dials on the front.
The lamp is in great condition and still has the original crackle glazed effect paint finish to the metal body.
This really is a design statement and would look fantastic in any environment.
This item will is supplied PAT tested.
