The lampshade is a reproduction made to the exact pattern by Retro 3A who specialise in these air ministry lamps

This is the rarer model of the navigator lamps having the 3 sections to the fork which dates the lamp to 1935. Superb original condition. These lamps were originally 12 or 24 volt depending on which aircraft was used this lamp has been rewired using period twisted flex to a 240v-12v transformer it has the original rheostat switch which is in full working order the LED bulb which is fitted will run cooler and give a brighter light.

Note; The lamp holder and the dimmer switch have the correct 5c/1079 Air Ministry markings. Mounted on a steel base for stability and giving the “Industrial Vintage look” Specification Correct fibre washers, nuts and bolts. The paintwork is original with age-related marks which are to be expected. The lamp holder and rheostat have the 5c marking and the “AM” and crown marking to the fork. Herbert & Terry springs are also original.

These lamps were used in aircraft like the Wellington bomber and Varsity trainer but the most widespread use was the Lancaster Bomber.

Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.
