Mole-Richardson [ England} lamps were all that colour here in the UK and Europe the company was bought by Lee Electric in the 1970's .
P.S. I should have said that Mole Richardson [England] had a factory in a place called Thetford which is in Norfolk or maybe Suffolk .
Thanks for the tip John!
I searched throughout the internet and and found out that Mole-Richardson (England) Ltd:
- had some patents ( http://documents.all...son-England-Ltd )
- had branch companies in Paris, Rome, Madrid and Munich where they were selling and renting gear ( http://www.gracesgui...dson_1958SL.jpg )
- was a subsiriady of George Humphries & Co. Ltd (later Humphries Holdings PLC) which was then acquired by Lee International in 1985
Apparently National Media Museum in Bradford, UK has one Type 398 in their Kodak Colletion. I'm contacting their research dept. for more info. ( http://collection.sc...odlamp-type-398 )
Most interesting thing is that Mole-Richardson (England) Limited had nothing to do with the Mole-Richardson in the Hollywood.
Somehow would've thought there was some sort of connection.
