The General Electric Company produced these lights in the 1930s. They're some of the earliest electric light fittings designed to provide directional light in shop windows. We've fully replaced the metal parts with traditional arm and canopy, including a threaded knuckle joint to offer multi-directional lighting.

Can be wall or ceiling mounted. Versatile and charming, they offer a lovely even glowing directional light or wash, depending on how you set them up.

These are rarely found in numbers. Three have sold to a customer in Denmark.

We have three remaining - two Dark Green shades, one Silver. All have remnant GECoRAY stickers in various states of legibility.
