Album name:Tom / Low Pressure Sodium Lanterns
Cap Type:BC

Comments:As purchased from John (Thorncollector). Very sleek design for it's day! This would have been time clock controlled as the lack of photocell hole would suggest. May convert to 60w SLI/H as per the original design or leave as is!

Yep 60w SLI would be awesome. A bit of t-cut on that cover and this would look amazing! This resembles a lucidor b a lot!

Yeah these were a nice design, GEC used sleek curves whilst every other manufacturer was doing the usual 1960s shoe box designs!

This is a nice. Is the bowl glass?

Cheers guys! Bowl is acrylic. Not sure if a glass version was offered but it'd be like... Phwoar!! Would be a heavy little bugger too!

Yes this a very nice! Only a few left around here now and not for long! Sad

Reminds me, I'm sure I have the smaller version of this floating around up north someplace. Need to dig it out next time I'm up there. This one looks to be in good shape.
