Vacuum pressure cylinder lamp
The main component of this lamp is an up-cycled vintage glass cylinder pressure gauge but we are not sure of exactly how it was used in its past life. The manufacturer was Sydney Inst. Co. SICO. This is an original design by Little Anvil and is limited to one only.
The cylinder houses one of our E27 240V threaded entry lampholders, which has an internal locking mechanism that doesn’t allow the body to be accidentally unscrewed when changing the bulb. The lamp is earthed via an internal connection inside the lampholder.
The body of the lamp is attached to an antique Buckner Butterfly sprinkler base using custom ELG brass components. All of the vintage parts have patina and marks and from a life of use, but are generally in amazing condition and have been sealed with a layer of Penetrol.
The globe is changed by loosening four nuts at the top of the cage, taking off the metal plate that holds the gauge and lifting the glass cylinder out. The metal mesh around the cage casts shapes onto the surrounding surfaces making this lamp quite special once it’s turned on.
The lamp comes with an inline switch, 2.0m of red & white zig zag pulley cable and an AU 3-pin plug. We can supply with UK or similar if required. Would suit a hotel concierge, restaurant reception, vintage themed venue/home or as a large decorative table lamp.
