ART DECO CONVERTED MEDICAL LAMPS
COPPER SHADE ON ARTICULATED STAND
A matched pair of hand stripped and burnished medical lamps in a combination of copper and chromed brass with cast iron stepped bases (Bakelite knobs on ends of arms are a slightly different shade of green).
Clever circular joints with butterfly adjusting nuts allow for pivoting movement of the upper arms whilst the angle of the shade can be finely adjusted via the neck joint. Highly reflective mirror coating on the interior of the shades provides maximum illumination.
Supplied with Edison style filament bulb, one has been re-wired with chocolate brown cloth flex, chocolate brown rocker switch, black bakelite style plug and full PAT test. The second will be re-wired to match (unless sold separately).
