Pendant lighting by ELECOEra: 1960s Origin: UK
Attractive pendant lighting produced by British manufacturer E.L.E.C.O. A polished aluminium 3 part gallery, with manufacturer's cast marks, and original white thermoplastic shade.
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
Before a light can be restored, any damaged outdated components will require repair or replacing. As part of this work we replace original imperial screws with their modern-day metric counterparts and rework their screw ports to take them. We replace the original electrics with brand new, fully certified EN60598 components - this gives you peace of mind, knowing your vintage light is as safe to use as any modern light.
Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension chain, elephant grey braided cable and 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).
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.
Eleco (The Engineering and Lighting Equipment Co) was founded in 1895 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire. Eleco quickly established themselves as specialists in providing complete street lighting layouts, with one of their most famous projects being the original lighting for the Victoria Embankment in London. Eleco street lanterns are easily recognisable with their distinctive branding and two part aluminium and prismatic glass enclosures.View all Eleco Lights
