Description

Description:
The 80mm shade was, in its first version, made of black anodized aluminium and made available about 1961. The earliest and rare version of shade has a ‘wrinkle’ finish paint rather than the smooth black paint. A plastic version replaced the metal one in 1974 and used the same code number but is is slightly larger in diameter than the metal one.

This is the early CRACKLE finish shade.

Initial code was SEMOC and later 40018.
