JUPITERLICHT

MADE IN GERMANY

A very rare early German cinema/stage light, which has been rewired with a period fabric cord.  Would be a very stylish decorative living room piece.  The wiring can handle up to 500 watts, but for domestic use, such as using it next to a sofa, 40-100 watts would be sufficient.  It currently has a 40 watt bulb fitted, which I find ideal to read under.

The construction is very solid, with many pieces made of a light alloy and a cast iron base.  The height adjustable handle is made of ebonized bakelite.  The original glass and internal reflector are in exceptional condition.  The wiring had been redone for domestic use, with an on/off switch attached to the cord and a new period style plug.  The fixture and base have been repainted.  At a point in it’s life, someone hand-painted the light housing, so it had to be sanded, in order to achieve a smooth finish.  The light has some dings, as expected of a period item, which evidently got lots of use.

During the 1920s, Berlin was one of the worlds premier film, cabaret and arts centres.  The classic movie, Metropolis was filmed during this period.  Jupiterlicht must have been the most advanced and desired lighting during the era.

There are very few surviving Jupiterlicht lights from this period, none of which seem to be for sale.  It’s also highly unusual to see one, which had been made for the North American market.  Truly a rare piece!

Offered at $1595.- SOLD

The item will ship in two boxes by UPS.  It must be insured for the full sale amount.  Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges.

E. Leitz Wetzlar (Leica) Rangefinder

Manufactured in the 1930s

Measurement in Feet (Imperial/Standard)
Made in Germany

Offering an early Leica rangefinder in excellent working order.  There are signs of age and use, but a very solid vintage bit of Leica kit.  This rangefinder could be mounted to most early cameras, from various manufacturers.  Although, an early Leica camera owner would find it very desirable.
The range-finder is very accurate. The dial is in feet, as opposed to metres. It was obviously made for the UK or US markets. The dial moves very smoothly and the viewer is easy to use. There are some scratches to the glass, but nothing which would impair it’s use. The brass is showing through in various areas of the black paint and nickel plated pieces. It’s in fantastic shape for it’s age and will work perfectly with an early Leica camera. Likely manufactured in the mid-1930s. Made in Germany.
The item will ship insured by either Priority or Express.  For shipping rates please be in contact.  It’s your choice!
Will ship internationally.  On international shipping,  I cannot be held responsible for items held up in customs, loss or damage.
$290.00 SOLD
