Magic Lantern Lights
With this light I used a number of slides again from the end of 18hundred - beginning of 19hundred depicting scenes from an african village and very probably a missionary school in Africa.
The pictures are set in triangels and two glass stripes in warm clear white and amber run all the way from top to bottom.
The main body of the light is kept in opaque white glass, 14cm square and 60cm high.
The light comes supplied with a 3m switched black flex and light bulb equivalant to 70w.

Mickey Mouse in 'Fishing Around'
This light as been made with the use of the original magic lantern slides from the 1930. These images have been printed onto a thin plastic film which have been sandwiched between to pieces of glass. Through time the plastic has bubbled up wich is normal with slides of this age and make but less noticable than displayed here.
The light is called Mickey Mouse in Fishing Around. It is 65cm high and 14cm square with the main body kept in opalescent glass with a light turqouise stripe of mouthblown glass down the left side.
