1930s Art Deco opaline hall light

Era: 1930s Origin: U.S.A

Once illuminating a hallway in a Manhattan townhouse, this 1930s ceiling light is Art Deco through and through. A tiered opaline glass gives a soft and even glow of illumination when lit, contrasting against a chrome-plated and rippled gallery. Great for entrances, foyers and hallways.

U.S.A

Origin: U.S.A

Unlike the communist Eastern Bloc countries, lighting design in mid-century U.S.A. benefitted from a free market. Different companies were working at the same time designing and producing similar products for the same market, often with only slight differences in their style. Due to the location we rarely have the opportunity to reclaim and restore light fixtures from the U.S.A., but some of our perennial favourites are the old signal lights that adorned the highways of the midwest. We reconfigure and restore these timeless classics into functional pendant lights, for both residential and commercial use.

Restoration

Once we’ve salvaged a collection of lights, we bring them home to our studio and begin the slow process of restoration. Each light is disassembled and we examine every component for damage and flaws, so we know which can be kept, and which need to be replaced. We then hand over to our experts – in-house and locally – to carefully restore each component by hand.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder. If you would prefer an E26 lamp holder (USA), please just ask.
