There are six of these spotlights and this is the first to be re-fitted, nothing at all needed to be done externally, it is almost as it left the factory over fifty years ago, Internally it has been re-wired with 2m of elephant grey cloth covered cable with an inline switch and 13amp plug. An E27 lamp holder for Edison screw domestic lamps has been fitted in place of the P28 theatre lamp holder. Other lamp holders and cabling can be fitted to meet your requirements.

Fully Reconditioned 1960s Theatre Lantern
This is an original example of an iconic piece of British Industrial design. Known as the ‘Baby Spot’ the Patt 23 was manufactured by Strand Electric in their factory in London’s West End. The lantern is superbly engineered, and features a die cast ventilated body, iconic circular design and an internal reflector. This example was manufactured in the1960’s, purchased by a school in the North West where it was installed in their theatre and remained there until a few months ago. It seems that it has been hardly used and is in stunning original condition with barely any signs or wear on the bodyshell. We have been restoring these lanterns for over a decade now and I’ve never seen any in finer original condition
