A pair of hand drawn original design for "arc lamp pillars"

Dated. 26/3/11. (Believed to be 1911)

An arc lamp or arc light is a lamp that produces light by an electric arc (also called a voltaic arc). The carbon arc light, which consists of an arc between carbon electrodes in air, invented by Humphry Davy in the first decade of the 1800s, was the first practical electric light. 

It was widely used starting in the 1870s for street and large building lighting.

These designs depict decorative street lamps. 


Framed in house using archival grade methods and a solid wood frame.
