    A Mole Richardson Model 410 2000 Watt Fresnel Studio Light, circa 1939
    65-1/2 inches high (166.4 cm)

    The paint has been refreshed with factory correct instrument paint finish and bead blasted the fixture yoke to expose the original Shelby Steel Tube yoke and the original bronze fittings. A correct vintage original on-off switch and original thick factory cable, included is a new wireless remote control on-off switch to easily engage power on this light. This remote is not visible on the light fixture but connects to the plug in at the wall outlet. This studio fixture was owned and used by Paramount Film Studios until sold in 1988. The original factory electrical internals are cleaned and de-wired, fitted with a socketed 2700 degree LED lamp for display purposes. A wall outlet remote On/Off control is added for illumination activation, so that no visible, incorrect or modern switches are added to the fixture. A refinished mid century factory stand is included.

    Estimate: $12,000 - $18,000.
