Exceptionally rare and superbly stylish, this is a vintage converted medical floor light by English manufacturer 'Hanovia' originally used in the 1950s for UV light therapy. Lamps like this would have once been used to treat a large number of ailments in hospitals and in the home.
This lamp has been professionally rewired with inline switch and black and white corded chevron flex, but please do note that this lamp is untested so it will require safety testing by a suitably qualified person before use.
An elegant polished spun aluminium shade features the original manufacturer's plaque, and is mounted to a chrome plated telescopic (height adjustable) stem. The brushed and lacquered steel base is complete with the original polished aluminium legs and castors while also featuring the original switches. The shade can be angled laterally to adjust the direction of light and the whole lamp can be lengthened or shortened in height.
Established in 1924 and based on Bath Road, Slough, Buckinghamshire, Hanovia were industry experts in developing UV and heat lamp technology. Many floor and table-mounted versions were developed over a 50 year period for home and professional use. The success of the designs is clear - similar models remained in production for many years with only very small adjustments to tweak the design efficiency of the lights. Although the business activities have diversified, the company still specialises in UV technology over 90 years later, from the same west London site.
