Using old and oft-forgotten techniques, Authentic Models have been able to bring back the interesting shapes of Admirality and hold and go down lamps from the early 1900s with this Main Hold Lamp. After finding the original at a Paris auction, AM were spellbound by it and were able to unlock the wing nuts and study the construction. All replicas were made by hand, one by one, duplicating every design and technical detail of the original.
Hanging from stainless steel wires up to 2 metres in length with 2 disc-guides, these lights are designed to hang from the ceiling (they include a ceiling bracket). The light is under a plain glass lense, sitting in a hand polished heavy aluminium cast cradle. The lamp has a beautiful vintage look, and would work well as a piece of mood lighting in a sophisticated living room.
This Main Hold Lamp is a replica of an Admirality lamp from the early 1900s. Very few of the originals have survived; people were asked to turn in their brass and aluminium heirlooms during the Second World War, and they were largely melted down and turned into artillery and bullets for the war effort. Authentic Models were very lucky to be able to find a surviving original; this lamp is the legacy of a whole series of lost lamps.
