The lamp was salvaged from a car garage in the south west of England and originally used as an engine inspection lamp. English, Circa 1930s. Dugdills.
Dugdills were one of the first manufacturers of industrial lighting. The company was founded in the 1930s by John Dugdill a prolific British inventor who filed a succession of technical patents in both Britain and the US before 1939.
Every piece of the lamp has been painstakingly de assembled, with each part cleaned and polished. Once re assembled the lamp has been re wired with modern components and exposed metal parts given a coat of clear lacquer. The enamel parts will show some signs of cosmetic wear in the form of chips, dents and age marks.
As with all of our products this product is an original piece and has lived a life before it arrived at Otto's HQ. It has been sympathetically restored by the Otto's team to ensure it has a life for many more years to come. All of our products will show signs of patina and cosmetic wear, this we believe is what gives our products their unique charm.
