Upcycled Rare Vintage 1940s Projector Retro SciFi

Upcycled Rare Vintage 1940s Projector Retro SciFi

This rare vintage 1940s Argus 150 8mm projector has been given a new lease of life upcycled as a retro sci-fi style lamp.

This rare vintage 1940s Argus 150 8mm projector has been given a new lease of life upcycled as a retro sci-fi style lamp. The projector has been stripped of the original brown/beige paint down to the bare metal and repainted in this stunning high gloss burgundy. The old projector was then re-wired and fitted with two chrome adjustable flexible light fitting each with a huge oversized mirrored Edison globe bulb containing a gorgeous spiral filament producing lovely warm glow. The original ight fitting inside of the projector has also been replaced and now emits a mysterious red glow from the lens and the vent on top.

The lamp has an overall height of approximately 35cm, width of 45cm, and length of 43cm (based on having the adjustable lights positioned as in the photos).
The vintage Edison style LED bulbs are cooler than the traditional incandescent bulbs as they use up to 90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, and have up to 30,000 hours lifespan.

The lamp is also fitted with a vintage style brown braided flex cable with an inline switch, and a 3amp British plug. All fittings are genuine British parts, all hand-wired to a high, professional standard.

This is an original vintage item so there may be some natural wear and tear which adds to the character of the lamp.

Thank you so much for taking time to look at our handmade item, and please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
