The slide projector was once a necessary part of any serious amateur photographer’s equipment. The definition and depth of colour on a slide was just so much better, and more long lasting, than in the early colour prints. This Sangko Romanslide 200 projector, manufactured in Japan in the 1950s, has been converted into a desk lamp, with the addition of a flexible lamp pipe and a somewhat funky shade made from the inside of an old box camera. The original projector lamp was removed and replaced by a ceramic socket holding an 8 watt red nightlight bulb – the red lamp harkening to the red lights used in photographic darkrooms – as well as complementing the red manufacturer’s label on the outside of the projector.
Size 12″ x 4″ x 12″ (30cm x 10cm x 30cm)
All electrical components are new. Comes with 2 ceramic candelabra base sockets, a red 8 watt bulb and a 15 watt clear bulb as shown, and approximately 6 feet of black vinyl cord with an in-line rocker switch.
