Period ceiling light. Circa 1930Era: 1930s
Vintage glass and steel ceiling light. Elegant opaline glass enclosure with brushed and lacquered steel gallery.
Once a light has undergone preparatory treatment and the degraded surface has been removed, the path is clear for us to bring it back to life. At skinflint we tend not to repaint surfaces, this would make the lights look too ‘new’ and they’d lose some of their individuality. So, with ferrous metals such as iron and steel, we wax-polish the surface on large rotating cotton wheels adding shine, grain and highlights to the casting details and bringing out the light’s character through surface and patina.
Supplied with new bayonet (B22) lamp holders.
Supplied tested to BS EN60598. Converted for use in the US and worldwide. IP20 for internal use only.
