Item Description

Early 20th Century English Metal Fairground Crown Light

A unique example of an early 20th Century metal scratch-built fairground light in the shape of a crown. Hand crafted from metal sheets supported by a pine frame. It has recently been rewired to a UK 240v output power source as the old lamp holders needed replacing due to rust and corrosion. This piece would originally have been positioned at the top of a fairground amusement of sorts. All its original paint still present as shown, a real interior design or restaurant piece of quirky lighting.
