      Nice! Could it have been used at the front of a theatre stage, as limelight?

      Thx for the welcome. Wonderful sight I could get lost in here for days

      So a buddy of mine says it a really old portrait light. And that it would sit in front of a portrait and up light it via the two reflectors. Makes sense. What do you think about this theory

      What are the dimensions? Is the rectangular reflector a mirror? Is it fixed or adjustable? If adjustable, does it raise and lower as well as angle-tilt? If the tilt is adjustable, then knowing the minimum/maximum angle might shed some light on what it could be (pun intended!)

      If it's not too big it could be used to sit on a mantel or shelf and illuminate a painting on the wall.
