This vintage brass Governor paraffin blowlamp has been beautifully upcycled into a vintage Edison industrial style table lamp. This lamp would look great as a statement piece in a livingroom, bedroom, office, bar, restaurant, or any other area.
John Shaw & Sons (makers of the Governor brand) were a British tool and engineering company dating from 1667 to 1973 in Wolverhampton, England.
This vintage blowlamp has the Governor trade mark logo and has been fitted with metal antique style lamp fittings with a 40w vintage LED filament Edison style light bulb, creating a lovely warm glowing light with a gold tint. These Edison style LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, and have up to 30,000 hours lifespan.
The lamp is also fitted with a vintage style brown braided flex cable with an inline switch, a metal antique style cord grip, and a 3amp British plug. All fittings are genuine British parts, all hand-wired to a high, professional standard.
To give this upcycled vintage blowlamp added weight and stability, it has been secured to a plinth made from an old piece of distressed wood
Please note that this is a vintage upcycled item and there will be signs of wear and tear, marks, scratches, or rust in areas, which all adds to the distressed characteristics of the lamp.
We came across this old parafin blowtorch and wondered if we could do something with it. After a little though and a lot of hard work and effort, we realised that we were able to upcycle it into a vintage industrial style table lamp by attaching a vintage style light fitting to it and securing it to a wooden plinth for added stability. A lot of time was spent on upcycling this old blowtorch, paying great attention to detail and adding high quality fittings.
