"...the holy grail of 5C/1079 navigators lamps...."
Our philosophy is very simple. Unless it's right, it won't be dispatched.
Paramount Pictures required two Navigator workstation lamps for the film "Overlord" (released in November 2018).
Original items were not suitable for use as irreversible damage to historical items would be probable during filming.
These items were made 100% in-house by Retro3a and to a very tight deadline.
Here's the feedback:
"......they're brilliant ! Thank you very much. Everyone is very pleased with them."
This is another "generic" style of lamp. In some applications, it has the 5C/1079 style of lamp shade. It is thought that this type was fitted to the RAF specification Douglas DC3 Dakota.
In other applications like the Shackleton and Canberra, it has a more robust lamp shade yoke and bowl-style lamp shade.
We can reproduce either style of lamp.
