SOLD

PRICE PER LIGHT. Exceptionally rare.

This fabulous original BECO pull-down makes ideal lighting over a desk, a kitchen bench or any area needing flexible task lighting. BECO pull-downs are rare in any condition but we have two and they're near perfect. Rewired with black cloth cord, all other elements are original and in perfect working order, including the pull-up-pull-down mechanism.

These were removed from a midcentury home in Caulfield, designed by Russian emigre architect Anatol Kagan. Kagan specified all the lights in the house, which were being removed due to a rezoning of living areas and an extension. Emma gained exclusive access to the lighting which included several pairs of BECO wall lights as well as original unique BECO copper lights commissioned by Kagan for that home. These will be presented in March.

These pull-up-pull-down lights can sit at any drop from 62cm to 194cm, making them very useful additions to work areas and dining areas.

These lights are light weight and ideal for postage anywhere in Australia or the rest of the world.
