Vintage Carpenter's Plane "1919" CrazyLamp

*personalised - hand engraved pyrography for a 5th Anniversary gift* (see first & last photos)

Celebrating its centenary in 2019 - this piece represents Rekindled Yard's ethos of reusing, recycling and recreating perfectly.

Born in Glasgow to Mathieson & Son - raised by students and artisans in Belfast!

Marked "1919" this 100+ year old plane found its way to The Belfast Municipal Technical Institute - a wonderful collector item, with so much history! Opened in 1907 - locally known as the ‘The Black Man Tech’, this college of technology was a state of the art facility in the early 20th Century. The college name came from the original statue on the site; the first public statue in Belfast, which was erected in 1855 to commemorate Fredrick Richard, Earl of Belfast (his courtesy title as heir to the 3rd Marquis of Donegall). The statue was dark bronze and some say that it was later painted black due to weathering making it look rather mottled.  Soon the famous, listed building was known as ‘THE BLACK MAN’ and became one of Belfast's best loved rendezvous spots and noted landmarks in the City.
Wood worker's plane, converted to an electric lamp - new brass light fittings, antique bronze cable, rocker switch and fitted plug. Bulb fitting - standard bayonet.
Dimensions: 56cm/22in long, 7.5cm/3in wide
