1970s Japanese Brass Marine Nautical Searchlight Pendant Lamp, Edison E40-E27



This very substantial fitting was salvaged from an old Japanese cargo ship built during the 1970s, These lights have travelled one million miles at sea! We have expertly converted the search light to be a pendant for down lighting areas such as breakfast islands, bar tops, dining tables, snooker tables etc. The highly polished brass finish makes it stand out as a real statement in its environment, an item sure to impress. The bulb is a 300 watt tungsten which gives a really warm light and looks very unique with the brass reflector inside the dome, the lamp is a GES (giant Edison screw) type which work well with the size of the dome. We also supply a bulb reducer E40 - E27 should you wish to use a smaller bulb. The lamp is replaced by turning the five wing nuts around the rim, this releases the hinged glass lens/rim for access to the lamp. Measures: Width 35cm Height 53cm Weight 7kg.
