Fully Reconditioned 1950s Theatre Lantern
This is an original Mk1 Patt 23 made by Strand Electric in their Covent Garden works. The lantern is superbly engineered, and features a die cast ventilated body, 360 degree rotation, iconic circular design and an internal reflector.
It is a genuine and original piece of theatre history. It is not flawless and brand-new but does show the knocks, scratches and repairs of a hard working life which is what give it it’s own unique character and patina.
The body has been professionally polished and the lantern has been converted to take a domestic Edison Screw lamp. It is fitted with black cloth covered flex cable, with an in-line switch and moulded plug. It has been tested for electrical safety and is supplied with a certificate of compliance
The Patt 23 is a profile spotlight and gives a sharp beam for feature / architectural lighting and showing specific objects such as a work of art. Coloured filters can be added in a frame fitted to the colour runners at the front to create mood lighting
The Lantern is displayed on a wooden base stand but can also be suspended from a ceiling fitting, or wall bracket or mounted on a handmade classic wooden tripod floor stand – please call us to discuss your requirements.
