The light has been superbly engineered, and features a die cast ventilated body, 360 degree rotation, Iconic circular design and an internal reflector. The spot light has been professionally polished to a bright mirror finish by a specialist British company. The finish is to an extremely high standard. We take pride in the finished result as the light represents a unique and rare piece of design history.
