Kosyaire Industrial Lamp
WHEN: 1950’s (?)
WHERE: New Zealand
DESCRIPTION: Can you believe this greaser started his life as a heater, for over 50 years he kept professional dart players warm while they sank pints and smoked cigarettes, some even lit cigarettes off the cigarette they’d just smoked, darts can be intense and stressful!
How do we know? Because we literally spent 5 hours cleaning the thick yellow nicotine paste that these heaters were preserved in, and boy was it worth it!
We also got to meet the Darts Club leader, his name was Papa T! He was one cool dude, rocking a wind swept mullet he was all business up front, and judging by these heaters which have been stripped, cleaned and rewired into amazing lamps, he was sure partying up large out back!
DIMENSIONS: W 28cm H 45cm (off wall)
NOTE: These are on a 3 pin plug to a switch with an e27 fitting best suited to LED.
