From the little bit I’ve read it seems that Rotaflex Concord are a British manufacturer of architectural lights, who opened their doors in 1968, and are still in operation today. Looking at the style of today’s wall-mounted light I’d guess that this ball light would have been made quite soon after Concord first started out – possibly in the late 1960s or early ’70s? Because of its age, the light is starting to show signs of wear – most notably the plastic mount has yellowed a bit. Personally though I think the designers made a mistake with this one – I would have preferred a black mount, so if you’re handy with a can of spray paint that might be a quick fix. That being said you probably won’t notice the fact that plastic has discoloured once the light is fitted – I’m sure the bling of the chrome ball is what will draw the most attention!

Dimensions: 17cm in diameter; 29cm long (from end of tip of plastic mount to top of chrome ball)
