I've been buying extraordinary objects for 40 years. Five novels have emerged from my obsession with 20th century's rare designs. Some of my collection is for sale.

Operay multibeam surgical lamp. 1930’s. Aluminum and mirrors. This is the holy grail of 20th century industrial lighting. Two rare versions of this lamp exist. This one is by far the coolest machine age lamp on the planet.. Light from a single every day lightbulb gets focused onto six fixed mirrors which send a single concentrated glow below them. In medicine, it was a method of removing shadows from the surgical field. Works perfectly. Ready to hang over a table in an industrial loft, or a BED!!!, or to light up a special object. 48” from mirror to mirror. 60” drop.
