This amazing lamp has been carefully hand made using a selection of old car parts. The main stem of the lamp is crafted from a reclaimed BMW cam shaft – German Engineering at its best! The BMW marking can be clearly seen stamped into the metal part way up the stem of the lamp.
The base of the lamp has been created from a timing chain gear cog which has been cleaned, polished and attached to the cam shaft. The lamp is fitted with an E27 ES (edison screw) bulb holder and comes complete with an LED edison style lamp for that retro look with energy efficiency. The lamp is finished off with a new black lamp shade (which still has the cellophane protective wrapping on) but the threaded lamp holder can accommodate any standard lamp shade fitting for you to add your own twist.
The grey mottled fabric covered twisted cable incorporates a retro style on off switch half way along for convenient switching of the lamp. Unlike many similar lamps available the cable runs down the centre of the shaft rather than on the outside.
This item would be a lovely gift for any BMW or car / motor enthusiast and would be a great talking point either in the home, office, restaurant or bar.
This and my other items made from reclaimed or salvage components will have been cleaned and subjected to a range of finishing treatments, all of these items will display imperfections and show signs of their history through the odd scratch or dent picked up with wear and handling over the years. This is what gives these items their charm and warmth and makes each one truly unique, it is not a fault, it is an enhancement and is what has lead to the creation of the finished item.
The electrical conversion has been carried out by a qualified electrical engineer and this lamp comes complete with a current portable appliance test (PAT) certificate for your safety and peace of mind.
