Red Machine Lamp on Foundry Block Base
Vintage Red Machine Lamp on Foundry Block Base. Here is one of our completed Re-Lighting projects. This was a machine light, one of many I just purchased from a 70+ year old family owned machine and stamping business that just recently closed. I went in and purchased and removed all the machine lights, I have many more lamps to make. The base came out of an old closed up foundry, these wood blocks were foundry molds from the 30’s, – 50’s. Together they make a nice combination. We take each piece apart, clean outside and inside of each piece, we remove decades of grime, oil and metal shavings. We left all the original paint showing the layers of colors that were brush painted over the many years in use. We clear coat each piece to bring out the vibrant colors and patina, then rewire with a color matched twisted cloth cord, Edison style LED bulb, and lastly assemble and mount to a base. We can custom make one of these for you from a variety of colors to bases.
