this green while in fact being the 1st and official B&M green is well an odd green is know....

Personal Notes:
It is almost unheard of for the factory stickers to be intact on a 60+ year old light fixture, for this reason wet sanding was done around the stickers and a new paint job was color matched. This is as close to a numbers match factory restore as I will probably ever do! I could not help myself though, did strip paint from select key hardware (back to raw metal) making those architectural details pop. Couldn’t help myself, it’s what I do…

Conditions of return:

All Lights are refurbished using USA specifications as the lights were originally manufactured.
120 Volt AC, E26 sockets (Edison Screw Medium/Standard), and either NEMA 1-15 ungrounded (Type A) or NEMA 5-15 grounded (Type B) plugs. Unless otherwise noted in description. Use in Non North American Regions will require the user purchase the correct current / Plug adapter for use in their county.

* Receiving base for bulbs - These two standards are interchangeable, meaning a US E26 will fit in a European E27 base, and E27 will fit in a E26 base. The only difference is the voltage (for light bulbs). In fact there is only 1 mm difference between the threads of E26 and E27, so they are virtually identical.
