One of a Kind VINTAGE Searchlight & Tripod FLOOR LAMP, Amazing Patina

  • $1,695.00


Incredible bespoke one of a kind floor lamp, made from a vintage marine searchlight and wooden tripod! This truly unique piece features a mid-1940's searchlight by USA maker Carlisle and Finch; this searchlight has the most impeccable verdigris patina, courtesy of years of weathering to it's solid brass exterior. Inside, it holds it's original parabolic mirror, now charmingly aged with generous foxing. Finally, the front of the searchlight encircles the original convex glass, complete with manufacturer's details in a Neutra-style font. Completely disassembled, cleaned, and restored while leaving the patina intact, the searchlight has been outfitted with a lamp socket with pull chain, connected via a vintage-style fabric wrapped electrical cord in coordinating brass colour, and finished with the largest filament-style bulb available. To complete the look, a replica brass and wood tripod was repurposed and fitted with a custom yoke to create a stand for the searchlight. In addition to being wonderfully functional, the tripod features rich dark wood (possibly teak), accented by brass hardware with a nice patina to it. A chain with ring connects the adjustable legs, and round brass feet finish off the tripod. This is an exceptional piece of which the likes will not be seen again for some time! Height variable, but currently set at about 52"H, searchlight is 19"W including handle. $1695
