GDR Aluminium Ships Bulkhead Light – EOW
Salvaged from Cold War German warships and tankers with toughened holophane glass. We also have the matching pendant lights to go with these wall lights.
I found these very cool lights attached to the walls and ceilings of the passage-ways of a fleet of similar ships that were run up the beach last year and I was very happy to buy over 100 of them in excellent condition. I knew that they would polish up well but was very pleasantly surprised to see them come out of our professional polishers looking this terrific.
In my opinion these lights sum up our ‘Marine Industrial’ lighting range; big in character, high in quality, very useful quantities and our infamously low price.
Always great to see lots of ‘Info’ on a light, these have the makers plate, casting marks around the cage and even the original ribbed glass has its certified stamp and serial number. The large circular makers plate reads.’EOW 220V IP66 – T45 OSKR BG 1 – made in GDR’ (This plate can be spun round on the same screws so that it is up the right way whatever way you mount the light). Around the cage is ‘100W’ & ‘0755-17’.
Made by EOW in the 1970’s, a time when they were a ‘people owned’ East German company.
Fitted with a new CE Certified bulb holder.
