Vintage 1960’s Barber Heater converted to Table Lamp
What a glorious silhouette this table lamp has with the exaggerated arc of the stand. Unmistakably from a bygone era and yet a piece that will fit neatly into the modern home, this 1960’s infra red / ultra violet heater has been given a new lease of life with its conversion to a stylish light.
The enamel finish is a metallic light grey brown. There are some minor scratches but these are superficial and add to its charm. The lamp head is can be angled up and down and the original ‘click’ switch on the back of the lamp is still used. Made by Barber in the 1960s, the lamp still has the original sticker affixed to the base.
This heater has been fully refurbished as a lamp, rewired with black braided fabric cable and has been PAT tested. As part of the refurbishment process it has been fitted with a handsome, LED globe bulb which emits a soft, warm light.
If you have any questions about this piece, please don’t hesitate to ask.
