1950s Hanau Bakelite UV Tanning Lamp Repurposed As a Table Lamp

We have available a rare Sollux 1950s Hanau Bakelite UV Tanning Lamp Repurposed As a Table Lamp. It was made by Hanau, based at Hanau (near Frankfurt), Germany. It has a wonderful Bauhaus, Art Deco, design.

Marked on the side of the lamp head ‘Original Hanau,’ the lamp head is made from Aluminium and painted Cream. The base is Bakelite with an integral cream coloured switch. The lamp head can be adjusted, as seen in the images.

The lamp is in very good condition with a few superficial surface scuffs and scratches, and one small dent measuring less than 4mm on top of the lamp.

Approximate Dimensions:-
Base Width: 26.7cm
Widest Base Depth: 15cm
Lamp length: 27.5cm
Height (when the lamp head is perpendicular to the base): 24.2cm

Although originally sold as a UV tanning lamp, it has now been converted to a desk lamp, with the original 150w Radium bulb replaced by a LED lamp! The original red glass multi-piece filter has been replaced with a clear perspex window. However, the red filter is supplied and can be used if preferred for a soft red glow.

A great looking vintage industrial light for your office, workplace or for bench craft work. Wonderful iconic design; really special! It is just waiting for you to add your own plug adapter (if outside the UK). A wonderful looking vintage lamp to complement any home décor! A real statement piece!

Remedial work undertaken:

Rewired with black flex: 0.6cm, 3 core, PVC sheathed, cotton braided.
New CE marked black plug top fitted along with a 3A fuse.
CE marked CE lumen 6500K daylight balanced LED bulb.
