Vintage equipment tester. The vintage Northrup and Leeds 10000-volt resistance equipment tester has been repurposed into a one-of-a-kind lamp, merging functionality with nostalgia. It was once used for precision testing, but now houses a warm Edison bulb, casting a soft, amber glow reminiscent of bygone eras. The tester’s original dials and switches have been artfully preserved, serving as charming embellishments on the lamp’s face. This unique creation not only illuminates spaces with a soft, ambient light but also pays homage to the ingenuity of the past, blending vintage aesthetics with modern design sensibilities. This piece of vintage equipment was purchased from the widow of a professional movie set builder who was frequently contracted to build movie sets for Disney and other production companies. Once of his specialties was building “mad scientist” labs.
