Industrial pendants by REVO

Era: 1950s Origin: UK

British pendant lights by REVO, the British lighting powerhouse of the 1920s to 1960s. The lights were salvaged from a 1950s electrical substation in the UK's North West. Refurbished by hand, these vitreous enamelled shades feature the original lacquered steel galleries, brass detailing, and manufacturer's marks.

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

Our lighting experts take great care to preserve original features such as the embossed manufacturer's logo on the shade and cast detailing on the gallery - 'REVO: PAT No 283385' - seen here on these lights. Tracing the heritage of each light, we investigate our internal archive of manufacturer's catalogues to steer its restoration. This extract shown is from ‘REVO: Electric Lighting Equipment’ dated, 1936.

Manufacturer: REVO

REVO was founded in the early 20th century and became a household name in the 1930s, when electric street lighting was widely introduced throughout the UK. Based in Tipton, Staffordshire, REVO engineers were famed for their creativity, often developing styles of lighting individual to the towns for which they were designed. This means that whilst there are a wealth of classic REVO styles, from prismatics and enamels to machinist lights and bulkheads, there are also some incredible individual rarities to be found.

A quick word from our customers

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

Pendant lights

I am so delighted to have found this website - beautiful original lights that are reasonably priced! I was not disappointed when my two pendants arrived. The service was quick and efficient. The lights are amazing. I can't wait to get them up in our new kitchen over the island.
