This lamp has been carefully made from an old Hardun brand road menders paraffin lamp. The metal lamp originally housed a paraffin burner but has now been fitted with an E27 ES (edison screw) bulb holder.
The weathered red painted metal housing has been treated with a wax finish to give it a warm finish which highlights the character of the old worn metal and the embossed makers name (Hardun) on the top.
It has red glass lenses on three sides which are intact with none of the cracks which are common in these old lamps. The fourth side has a hinged door, originally used in insert and light the paraffin burner, and now used for easy access to change the bulb.
The curved hanging handle on the top of this lamp would lend itself perfectly to the lamp being used as a wall light or suspended on a chain or cord making it useful for more than just a table or desk lamp. The lamp comes fitted with a 6 watt LED lamp making it very energy efficient.
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.
