Period opaline ceiling lightEra: 1950s
Vintage ceiling light. Opaline glass diffuser with the original polished brass 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 screw (E27) lamp holder. Can be converted to screw (E26) lamp holders (for use in USA) if required. Please state at point of order.

I've been admiring your lights for a while and the great work you guys do bringing them back to life... My Eastern Bloc LED light is now up and it's beautiful. Thanks for restoring such beautiful lights.
