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.
