Product Details

Price is for the pair of lights complete with the conduit box and cord with plug.

These beautiful, rare and unique, high end pieces of lighting are called the Novalux Projector by General Electric. Everything on this light is either solid copper or brass. They were designed this way so they could hold up against the weather on a boat, on the outside of a building, outdoor monument lighting, etc. The light housing itself is copper along with every clamp and screw attached to it. The yoke, mounting bracket, and huge wing nuts are all solid brass. The bracket mounting foot is also made by General Electric and has the instantly recognizable logo prominently placed on the top of the bracket. Everything is original to the lights, including the glass lenses. These red and green lenses are original, true color GE Novalux lenses. These lights were removed from a decommissioned ship several years ago.

The entire light has been disassembled and restored with great care. When cleaning I did leave some of the original patina to keep that authentic vintage look, as these light's housings can be polished to a much higher luster/shine... if that look is desired. The lights have been rewired and come with the original copper clad (MC) cable and a solid brass conduit box. I've also added cord and a plug. These are the accessories that really complete the setup. If for some reason you want these lights wired separately (on individual plugs), please message with any modification requests. The solid copper MC cable is a rare item in itself and pictures will further show the nice solid brass MC connectors, both at the light's wire entry point (in the pot itself) as well as to the conduit box. They have a mogul sized socket but I am including an adapter that will allow you to use a standard household medium base bulb. The last photo shows an alternative mounting bracket should you prefer this alternate bracket style instead of the tripod bracket.
