Vintage Strand Electric floor lightsEra: 1950s Origin: UK
A pair of vintage floor-standing 'Patt 45' spotlights lamps by 'Strand Electric' mounted to refurbished medical lamp stands.
Lighting design in the UK benefitted from a free market. Different companies were working at the same time, designing and producing similar products for the same market. Often with only slight differences in their style, they constantly upgraded and improved their original designs. Many of the products we salvage come from the old industrial heartland of England between Bristol and Bradford. This area of the UK was once the boiler room of the British economy - from the potteries of Stoke, through the engineering works of Birmingham, to the wool, textile and cotton mills of Oldham and Manchester.View all lights from UK
The lights have an unassuming brushed and lacquered steel body and original Fresnel glass lens, designed to provide optimum focus of light when used in the theatre industry. The bracket allows the light to be angled while the steel medical stand dated 1967, has a telescopic stem allowing easy height adjustment. The extract shown is from our own internal manufacturers archive and taken from the 'Strand Electric, Lighting for entertainment'. Dated 1963.
Each light is supplied tested and rewired with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 3 meters olive green braided cable, inline foot switch and a plug. Max height: 2020mm | Min height: 1530mm

Strand Electric was founded in 1914 by theatre electricians Arthur Earnshaw and Phillip Sheridan at 19-24 Floral Street, London. Over the next 50 years Strand became the UK and Europe's principal manufacturers of stage lighting and theatre equipment. In 1968, Strand was purchased by the famous Rank Film Corporation and became Rank Strand. Strand was eventually bought from Rank by a venture capitalist group in the late 1990s. Today, Strand Lighting is still run as a separate, independent company within Royal Philips Lighting, and continues as a leading name in stage, television and motion picture lighting.View all Strand Electric Lights

I toyed with this light for ages before I bought it, thinking it was a lot of money. When I eventually ordered and received the light, I was not disappointed. I love this light, so heavy, chunky and in my eyes, gorgeous. It will look brilliant in my dining room, in my newly renovated farmhouse.
