Iconic English Art Deco Bunting Figural Yacht Floor Lamp Conversion.

About

This iconic English Art Deco chrome and cream enamel yacht was originally designed to hold an electric heating element and was made by the Bunting McConnell Co. Ltd. of Worcester. However that was back in the day when small children must have had either huge hands or Asbestos fingers as the so called protective guard would hardly be deemed protective nowadays. Today however, once converted into a floor lamp, these yachts have become highly collectible and an instant conversation piece. The chrome-plated sails now reflect the light just as they reflected the warmth in its former life as a heater. Although these were produced up until the 60's, this particular example features the pre-war pattern base and dates from the 30's. All of the chrome is original as are the name decal and ivory enamel (The enamel does show some areas of loss from a life on the high seas, no doubt!) This wonderful fixture has been totally rewired and installed with a perfectly sized modern fluorescent fitting and in line switch.
