Seller: architecturalreclamationsalvage (251) 97.9%, Location: EAST MALLING, Kent, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 162266749023 Rare British Maxlume vintage industrial, art deco era, angular bulkhead lamp. This item has a prismatic glass diffuser and can be fitted vertically or horizontally making it ideal as a ceiling or wall lamp. These lamps were produced in the 1930’s by Maxlume in association with Veritys the electrical engineers and became a design classic and were once fitted to many factories and alike. A classic iconic lamp that was built to last, this lamp has led a sheltered life underground but still cleaned up to a wonderful patina and comes complete with the original ceramic bayonet bulb holder, a qualified electrician may advise this be changed to a more modern holder. I am not a qualified electrician but my guess is that if it’s lasted 80 years and still operates perfectly it will outlast and outperform a modern cheap plastic replacement? Sadly you can’t buy quality like this anymore, where could you possibly buy an over engineered bulkhead lamp that weighs 4kg? This item is high quality and comes from an era when Britain lead the world in the manufacture of these items. Even the white reflector is enameled not just painted like other bulkheads and all the original screws are still in use and not seized. A real design classic that can only appreciate in value.
