Vintage Mole-Richardson Type 410 Solar Spot theatre light, dating from circa 1935. This light was salvaged from a world famous film studio just outside London and was in completely original condition when discovered. Perfect for dressing and lighting events and parties that require a retro or vintage look or just to add an original design as a talking point.
We have restored this impressive lantern back to its original appearance, the black body has been recoated using a durable epoxy powder coat and all of the original fittings have been polished and re-fitted.
The unique interior focusing mechanism has been stripped back to its individual components, new silver steel runners fitted and all of the components restored to their original function and is now fully operational once again.
The bi-pin lamp holder is intact and an adapter plate fitted to it to locate an E27 lamp holder and an LED lamp to exactly the same filament centre height as the original 2k Tungsten Halogen bulb. The light has been rewired using 3m of cloth covered elephant grey cable and uses the original switch mounted in the base of the lantern. The original holophane fresnel lens and reflector have been re-fitted and are in excellent condition
We have matched it with a Vintage Hilger & Watts tripod of Beech wood, Steel, Aluminium and Brass. This has spent its working life as part of a surveyor’s equipment in West Wales and has been lightly restored to maintain the patina acquired from its working life. The fixing base that used to hold a theodolite has been adapted to hold a length of M10 studding which enables the lantern to be clamped firmly to the stand.
Each leg has a locking mechanism at the top & good strong clamps Height and spread can be set to suit your requirements
