Early silver backed multifaceted glass reflectors entitled the 'Altoray'. Originally designed as part of a range of reflectors of superior quality scientifically designed for the illumination of shop windows. Sensitively restored and still complete with manufactures label 'Altoray' .

 

 

Restoration

Restoring a light doesn’t necessarily mean making it ‘like new’. We often preserve the visible signs of age, such as spots of wear and patina, to give a hint about the light’s first story. Or we might reveal the bare metal, accentuating its build and design. The extract shown is from our own internal manufacturers archive and taken from a catalogue by 'EFESCA.' A Falk & Stadelmann company producing similar items and dated 1933.
