Antique mirrored glass pendant light

Era: 1920s Origin: UK

A stunning pendant light salvaged from St Barnabas church in Bethnal Green, East London, UK.

The light was originally installed in 1957 and recently removed during a period of renovation, and has now been sensitively restored and refurbished by hand. The silver plated glass shade has a lovely surface patina whilst the original lacquered steel gallery allows the shade to be angled and features original brass detailing.

The light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of brass suspension chain, traditional twisted old gold braided cable and a ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable, wire suspension or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).

The extract shown is from our own internal manufacturers archive and taken from a catalogue by 'EFESCA.' A Falk & Stadelmann company producing similar items and dated 1933.

Please also visit the blog to see an original catalogue by G.E.C dated 1926 which features a similar product and outlines its design and original application here >>

UK

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.

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 really good and I am really pleased with it.
