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.

Each light is supplied with new bayonet (B22) lamp holder and 2mtrs of twisted old gold braided cable and ceiling plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable please just ask).

G.E.C

Manufacturer: G.E.C

Established in London, in 1886 the General Electric Company were to become the largest electrical manufacturing organisation in the British Empire and lived up to their description of ‘Manufacturers of everything electrical’ throughout their 100 year history. During the mass industrialisation of the 1950s, GEC were often the supplier of choice for lighting the factories, workshops and mills of Britain with their huge range of light fixtures for every application.

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.
