Cleaned, Polished And Ready To Fit With Good To Very Good Condition E27 Fitting. Requires Wiring By Competent Person. The image below shows the junction box cover. The top right screw only just does up, the internal thread has a slight angle which is the reason why.This minor manufacturing flaw is almost un-noticeable but requires pointing out. It will not however effect the functionality or overwhelming wow factor of the light. Description: Part of a bulk import from a while back, Phrases like "they don't make them like they used to" spring to mind, and as such this is actually a reluctant sale.
This very rare brass and bronze light is sizeable and in nearly new condition. If it was ever fitted onboard, then it was done so late in the vessels life there is such a lack of wear and no sign of old paint.
The front of the light is solid brass, the back part bronze. The lamp holder is a new replacement ceramic E27, the original unfortunately was brittle and cracked so I had to replace it. The reflector is in great condition and will make the output brighter, you could also choose to remove it (it is held in place by 3 small screws) and then the output would be more orange and not as bright due to the bronze back, but a stunning "mood light" as it were. Behind the steel plate in the junction box is space to terminate the wires off, and a new earth screw has been fitted.
This light is suitable for walls, or ceilings however it is heavy, (weight + dimensions are below) you will need to go into something solid. Please note these lights are not suitable for wet area's (bathrooms) or heavily exposed outdoor area's. The seals are good, but it does not meet current IP regulations.
This is a very unique and rare find and investment grade stock. 210mm Wide - Tips side to side. 250mm Long - Junction box to edge of hinge. 165mm Deep - Front of cage to tip of feet. This lights weighs 5.40 Kilo's.
