1930's Japanese Theatrical Lantern

Some finds tick the mad inventor box. Can I get this projector working? Can I turn it into a lamp for my studio?  Where are the slides? This lamp/projector is made by the Tokyo Electric Company, somewhere around the 1930s judging from the plug, bulb and wiring. It is a thing of beauty. Sourced from a quality collection of Japanese industrial objects, we believe that it is from a theatre where backdrops are projected onto white sheets whilst actors work their magic. A stunning piece. 

30cm x 22cm in unextended mode

We spend all of our time searching for and inspecting interesting objects. We view thousands of items a week in search of the special objects that deserve a pride of place in your home. Objects are available for inspection at the Bloodworth Bellamy store in Paddington, on the gateway to Sydney's famed Eastern suburbs (home to world class beaches) and Sydney Harbour (home to the Sydney Opera House).
