DESILU PRODUCTIONS STUDIO LIGHT - Desilu Productions Studio Light - Referred to in the industry as a "Bride light" measures 14 in. x 10 in. with removable frosted glass light buffer and adjustable stand. Wiring has been converted for home use and the unit is in working order. This model of light was in use from the 1930's to the early 1970's. RKO Studios originally used this particular light. In 1957, as part of their expansion of Desilu, Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball purchased many of the RKO properties - RKO equipment was black in color and upon purchase Desi ordered all equipment to be repainted in green with the Desilu logo. The legacy of this light could potentially span everything from RKO classics such as King Kong and Gone With The Wind to later Desilu productions such as I Love Lucy and Star Trek. Anything from Desilu is quite scarce and desirable. A working piece of Hollywood history.
