Here we have the rarest of rare stage lights - A circa 1960 Photon Beard (RR Beard) fresnel.
This is the seventh of these lights I have restored in the time I have restored hundreds of Strand Patt 123's and 23's.
A rare find indeed, especially mounted on original RR Beard telescopic stand.
Lamp has been polished to a high standard, the heat baffles have been re-coated powder black and gives a stunning contrast to the polished finish. Lens is original and perfect.
Lamp has been rewired for domestic use, with a ceramic E27 (screw) lamp holder, an
in-line switch and a generous length of black flex.
Comes with UK plug, wiring is suitable for 110v, 220v, 240v by use of travel adaptor (not supplied).
Original switch is present but has been bypassed in the interests of electrical safety.
Lamp rotates and swivels, beam focus is adjustable. Perfect fresnel lens provides a soft spread beam perfect for feature lighting.
RR Beard chrome telescopic air-damped stand is in good original condition and miraculously still bears the original RR Beard sticker and adjustment knobs. Chrome is in good condition and the two telescopic sections operate smoothly to give adjustable height from 3.5ft upward to 9ft.
Lamp dimensions 14 inches x 12 inches x 10 inches.
Buy it now option at 750, although I think this disappears once bids are placed.
Regular bidders and watchers of my lamps will be bored of me saying this but please take the time to properly compare the lamps I produce with the lamps of other sellers - you will notice that I produce one or two lamps per week, mounted on proper vintage stands, and refinished to a standard that cannot be bettered - not all lamps on ebay are the same by any means.
There are a multitude of sellers of restored stage lamps on ebay nowadays, so how do you choose which to buy?
Here are a few pointers -
Is the lamp mounted on a proper vintage tripod or is it on a reproduction item?
Has the seller taken clear photographs of the quality of finish? If not, why not? Do they show the lamp and stand in its entirety in any of their images? If not, why not?
Are you bidding on the item in the pictures or is the seller just using stock images of the same old lights on a multitude of repro tat tripods?
Has the lamp undergone a thorough restoration - have the internal baffles been recoated?
Does the seller claim attention to detail then post pictures of lamps assembled wrongly with wrong parts....?
Please be under no illusion that other similar lamps offered on ebay are of a comparable standard - I have high standards, hence I will not use the repro tripods, wrong lenses, questionable safety vintage style (for chandelier use only) wiring etc etc.
Please bid with confidence that my lamps never disappoint their delighted buyers - see my feedback
