Early darkroom lamp

Ref: 1276


H: 26 cm  H: 10.2 inches

W: 12 cm  W: 4.7 inches

A superb darkroom lamp from a photographic studio.

The lamp is also referred to as a ‘safelight’ as it provides illumination in the development of light-sensitive photographic images. Often dark red lighting is used in such studios as it emits low light energy that is unable to process the photographic film.

The lamp has a blown glass shade that drops loosely into a brass coloured aluminum holder. The holder is shut simply with a clasp keeping the shade closed whilst suspended with a brass bulb holder on a vintage-style woven cord.

Rewired, PAT tested, and verified.

Bulb not included.

English, circa 1930.
