US traffic lights (Type 11)

Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.A

Salvaged 1950s American traffic lights by 'Eagle Signal'. These stunning lights have a polished aluminium enclosure with a simple stepped profile, which features the original manufacturer's logo and branding.

U.S.A

Origin: U.S.A

Lighting design in the U.S.A. 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. Due to the location we rarely have the opportunity to reclaim and restore light fixtures from the U.S.A., but some of our perennial favourites are the old signal lights that adorned the highways of the midwest. We reconfigure and restore these timeless classics into functional pendant lights, for both residential and commercial use.
