Pottery lights (Type 2)

Luminaire Reference: 13_1740

Stunning run of British industrial fixtures by 'Thorlux' salvaged from a large 1950s pottery in Stoke on Trent, UK. Vitreous enamelled, black lipped, vented reflector permitting a degree of up lighting with a linished and lacquered steel enclosure. Slight wear and surface patinas add character and emphasis the age and heritage of the items.

The light is rewired, tested and supplied with a new linear T5 35W energy saving fluorescent and 2 meters of elephant grey braided cable. The florescent tube is located within an etched diffusion sleeve to prevent any glare and creates an even distribution of warm light (2700K) with an average bulb life of 20,000 hours.

Can alternatively be supplied with either a switched or dimmable (Dali, 1-10v, DMX or Leading/Trailing edge) LED lamp. Please contact the studio for more information.

Whats the difference in brightness between a fluorescent bulb, a LED bulb and a traditional 60w filament bulb?

Well in simple terms bulb brightness is measured in lumens. Lumens (denoted by lm) are a measure of the total amount of visible light (to the human eye) from a bulb or light source.

As a comparison this fluorescent bulb is 2460lm, a LED bulb of the same length is 2475lm and a traditional 60w filament bulb is 800lm.
