Shonan kosakusho ltd industrial searchlight tripod.
Manufactured in Japan circa 1982 this fixture would have been used on supertankers as a ship to shore luminaire.
There are some fantastic mechanical features including a lamp loader which is operated by the dial underneath, the light carries two lamps (one active and one spare) when the active lamp blows the replacement can be laid into place by a turn of the dial.
Also there is a split reflector controlled by the lever underneath and allows the intense beam to be split into two! the beam on this light would easily reach cloud level!
The body of then light is sheet aluminium and the yolk / bracket it stands on is cast aluminium.
