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.

Restoration

In the mid 20th century, lights were designed with care and made to last and the work we do at skinflint is based on respecting and preserving the heritage of each piece. We have a large manufacturer's archive which we study to research a lights history. This is an original 1920s catalogue image for the GECoRAY lights by G.E.C, dated 1920.
