Antique Gimbal Nautical Table Lamp with Gecoray Shade
A most unusual item. A nautical table lamp dating back to the early 20th century. The weighted gimbal feature enabled the top section of the lamp to float independently from the base and stay in an upright position regardless of how high the seas were.
Made of polished aluminium and brass. The weighted pendulum is filled with lead shot making this a heavy item.
Please note that the screws which enable the pendulum to pivot have been tightened to add a little resistance – allowing the shade to be angled.
Fitted with a silvered Gecoray Shade with Gecoray sticker visible.
Size 47cm high to the top of shade when in a vertical position. Diameter of shade 17cm. Weight 2.5kg
Wired as shown with approximately 2 metres of black braided twisted flex. Fitted with a switched brass B22 bayonet bulb holder.
PAT tested prior to dispatch.
