The Pattern 23M is a fully working scale model of the original 1953 Mk1 lantern, designed by aircraft designer Morgan McLeod, which has become a much-loved icon in theatre lighting history. The suffix ‘M’ stands for Mini. The accessories are also direct scale models of the originals and enable the Pattern 23M to be mounted as a desk lamp, on a wall, ceiling, or other suitable surface. In developing the range, we have striven to retain as much of the original detail as possible and practical. The lantern is even packed in a box stamped with the British Rail Certificate of Compliance. The Pattern 23M is pleasing to the eye, functional, and will surely evoke a sense of nostalgia.
The lantern is cast in zinc, ventilated, and features a 3-watt 3000K LED, variable beam angle, 90cm cable, and can be connected to a computer or power supply with a USB-A socket. Non-dimmable.
$23 from the sale of each Pattern 23M will be donated to CrewCare. CrewCare is all about supporting technical and backstage personnel and their loved ones, those who work or have worked in the Australian live music and entertainment scenes.
