Camera tripod floor lamp with unique vintage features
A unique tripod lamp with lovely vintage design features.
The 1960’s tripod is beautifully made with extendable brass legs, nice little rubber feet and unusual leather upper parts.
These features tie in nicely with the Bell & Howell cine camera that sits on the top.
I have repurposed the no longer functioning camera into a light source, with the silver chrome lamp holder replacing the lens.
The filament bulb gives a lovely warm glow and enhances the vintage character of the piece.
To hold the tripod legs together I have bolted a round, shapely brass part within the centre, with a small black snooker ball sitting on top. This continues the vintage theme of the lamp and also acts as an interesting harness for the flex.
I’ve used a striking red braided cable to complement the touches of red on the tripod and camera.
I’ve also added a black push switch on the top of the camera to turn the lamp on and off with ease.
Please note there are are a few small marks on the camera and tripod telling of their age. Just adds to the character.
The E14 filament bulb is included in the price.
All electrical items used are new and approved by CE safety standards.
The lamp has been PAT tested.
Brimming with character and vintage charm this lamp would delight a movie lover. Perfect for an office or warehouse living.
