After 30 years as a commercial photographer I’ve finally got my 1st hobby!
“American photographer John Scarpati has taken to scouring old Hollywood studio supply warehouses in search of restoration-worthy examples. made between the 1920’s and 1940’s, each light is a one-of-a-kind original, complete with vintage stand or tripod.they exude the sort of patina that can’t be matched by cheaply mass-produced repros, yet ironically, the lights in his etsy shop actually cost less than the replicas available in upscale malls. ‘my personal favorite finish is a heavy, industrial, vibe,’ explains scarpati. ‘completely refurbished, but still keeping its vintage look intact. less of a polished finished and more real deal.’”- “Designboom“
2K lights can be purchased at Old Hollywood Light Company

All 2K lights are rewired with standard Edison socket and bulb to be used as a standing lamp. Completely refurbished, while still keeping its vintage look intact.
Actual Reviews – that’s what they said!
“This 2K spotlight by B&M is such a nice edition to our decor. The seller does a great job not over restoring his lights like some of the others you may see. He leaves the right amount of patina which really adds a lot of character. If you are considering this look for your home don’t buy a reproduction you will get so much more enjoyment knowing you have an authentic spot from the golden era of film.
I had several questions which were all promptly answered, the light was packaged securely and shipping was quick. I highly recommend Scarpatistudio, you won’t be disappointed.”
