Vintage Table Lamps Pair Odeon Theatre Clamshell Movie Theater Lights (ANT-810)

ANT-810  Pair of Pink Antique Sea Shell Shaped British Odeon Theatre Table Lamps

Very unusual and very neat shell motif set of British theatre table lamps from England.  These lights are often called "Odeon", since this is the name of one of the main movie house chains in Britain.  They vary in style...most popular was THIS shell motif.  In older British theaters, you can still see them existing where they have been for over half a century or more.  Odeon is sometimes a synonymous term for a movie theater in Britain.  Saying "Let's go to the Odeon" is the same as saying "Let's go to the movies".

Saying all that...this is only the 2nd pair of Odeon table lamps that we have ever had.  Don't know what they were used for...but they did have British bayonet pin sockets in them when received.

The table lamps have nickel plated brass bases, which do have a mite of thinning of the finish, but only a mite.  The shades are a light pastel pink...and the affect between the nickel plating and the pink shades is quite striking indeed.

Measurements:

  • Height:  15"
  • Width:  8 ½" overall (shell shade).
  • Base Footprint:  6" diameter.

We have rewired these sconces to UL American standards, with new American sockets, in our UL shop.  They do have short cords with inline switches.  These fine lamps use medium base bulbs either incandescent, or Twisting CFL, or even LEDs.

Price:  $650.00 for this great pair of UL rewired Odeon table lamps with their pink shades...plus shipping charges.
