1930s Mazdalux copper pendants

Era: 1930s Origin: UK

These raw, industrial style vintage pendants date back to the 1930s, originally manufactured by Mazdalux in Rugby, Warwickshire. All original components remain preserved, including the striking copper plated shades featuring an original paint finish and a surface patina nodding to their age and rich heritage. Chain suspended, making a great addition to kitchens.

Origin: UK

Lighting design in the UK 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, they constantly upgraded and improved their original designs. The products we salvage come from the old industrial heartland of England. This area of the UK was once the boiler room of the British economy - from the potteries of Stoke, through the engineering works of Birmingham, to the wool, textile and cotton mills of Oldham and Manchester.

skinflint vintage lighting restoration workshop


At skinflint restoring a light doesn’t necessarily mean making it ‘like new’. We often preserve the visible signs of age and interesting spots of wear and patina in a testament to the light’s first story. Other times we might reveal the bare metal, accentuating its build and design. Whatever the restoration process, you can be sure you are receiving a truly unique vintage light fitting.

Manufacturer: Mazdalux

Mazdalux was the trade name for the industrial lighting section of British Thomson-Houston, with Mazda being the brand applied to its filament lamps. In the main, Mazdalux focused on the production of steel enamelled reflector lighting from its central UK production plant in Rugby, Warwickshire. In comparison to other manufacturers of the time, production was relatively modest, making these quite rare examples of industrial lighting from the early 1930s through to the 1950s.
