This old relic spent days on my work bench as I slowly worked through the painstaking process of converting it into a lamp. It is in near mint condition and has a few unique features that I wanted to save and include in the new creation.

One of these features is the thread light (red light at the base) that was used by the operator to see to thread the film in a darkened room. I was able to save it by adding it as a night light with the use of a new UL rated three way switch that is mounted near the electric cord in the base. This rotary switch controls just the night light, just the light under the shade, both lights at the same time or both off. I have added 5 feet of twisted brown cord and a reproduction vintage style plug. Also included is the beautifully textured ivory burlap shade.

NOTE: All former wiring has been disconnected and removed. All electrical parts are new, UL rated products. The motor is disconnected and does not work. The original lamp is in the cage, but it does not work. The film is threaded for display only. I am including the vintage movie, the box and a metal reel canister for the take up reel. The film is a 1948 Football piece.

Approximately 32" H x 18"W. The night light bulb is included. The light under the shade is a starndard household bulb (60 watt maximum) and is not included.

In order to protect the shade, this item ships in two cartons. Shade and projector ship separately.

Thanks for looking and please read my shop policies before purchase.
