Dating back to the 1930s, and likely used on a French battleship, this Authentic Models Marconi Spotlight had a highly specialised purpose. It functions as both a ship bound lighthouse and a device for transmitting detailed messages. It would have sat next to the wheel house on the bridge of a boat.
By moving the slatted louvers the ship's signalman could send short and longer spaced beams of light in Morse Code that could be read by trained soldiers in the distance. This way, they could send messages to each other. International maritime communication used Morse Code as the standard code until 1999. Created in the 1840s, Morse combined long and short pulses to convey a message. A ship in distress would send an S.O.S in Morse to other ships requesting aid.
The Marconi Spotlight has a beautifully polished aluminium pipe for its tripod. The brass hardware and solid brass folding floor parts ensure it is built to last. Stylish and elegant, as well as being used as lighting it could also be used as a wonderful piece of decor in a sophisticated living room. A true masterpiece in design.
Authentic Models have produced a selection of wonderfully varied lighting, and their designs are inspired by a plethora of historical lighting from around the world. These lights are nostalgic replicas of lights from other times and places; from the hanging lamps that were suspended from the rafters of a dockside depository in Singapore, to spotlights that lit the seas from the bridge of a tramp steamer on course to Venice. Their lights are romantic, appealing and highly functional.
