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.View all lights from UK
These very early 1920s lights were originally designed for use in high-end retail shop window displays, designed with care and made to last. We also strive to respect and preserve the heritage of the lights we restore. The original catalogue image, from our own internal archive, features these lights and others in the range by G.E.C.
Each light is supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2mtrs of traditional twisted silver braided cable and ceiling mounting plate.
Supplied tested to BS EN60598. IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.
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.View all G.E.C Lights

I was very happy with the products I received. They arrived quickly and were packed brilliantly and professionally. There was no way they were going to be damaged in transit.
