Vintage Opticians Eye Test Light, Lamp. A delightful opticians eye test chart, sourced from a British Military Medical Department. Great condition with working lights. This was built specifically for optometrists working in the British Army in the mid to latter part of the 20th century, circa 1950s-1980s, aka the Cold War period. This piece of essential kit for an optician, is one that most of us will be familiar with Close one eye and read the top line etc.This would create a great statement piece for a feature or mood light in your home, bar or shop. Standing at approximately 80cm tall and with a different feature on each four sides, the top section would have rotated on its axis with a simple push of a button. This item does not include the remote so I cannot test the motor function etc, it does spin around with a g entle p ush though. Currently this item (the lights) can turn on and off with no issues, I will include the multiple bulbs inside the main box and the red and green bulbs in the lower box. They are all bayonet and fairly easy to access if needed.
Simply plugging the box in will light it up, an in-line foot switch can easily be added. Made in a perspex/acrylic shell with metal surrounds, the light box is quite weighty at the bottom and lighter at the top. When illuminated in a darker area, the warm glow is quite relaxing and pretty cool too (as pictured).
We are offering this piece in as found condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Although structurally great, there are some surface scars and abrasions and some paint chipping in areas (very little). They do not however distract from the overall look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections.The item "Vintage Opticians Eye Test Light, Floor Stand Lamp- RARE British Army Light, Bar" is in sale since Wednesday, October 2, 2019.
