US traffic lights (Type 13 Raw)Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.A
Salvaged American traffic lights by 'WM' converted into suspended pendants that work extremely well over tables and island plinths.
Unlike the communist Eastern Bloc countries, lighting design in mid-century 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.View all lights from U.S.A
A two part enclosure which has been refurbished and reassembled by hand, preserving the original painted finish which adds an interesting surface colour and patina to the lights. The enclosure also features the cast makers mark, the original internal reflector and a new etched diffusion glass. The lights are suspended through a minimal stainless steel suspension system with ceiling mounting permitting millimetric adjustment.
Each light is supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2metres of elephant grey braided power cable, and a ceiling mounting system. (As with all our products, should you require a different colour cable just let us know).

We found exactly what we wanted at skinflint: large industrial pendant lights from an old Dunlop Aerospace factory. They fill the space beautifully and we often get asked where they were sourced. With such heritage attached to them, they are like a piece of history that adds to the modern vintage feel we wanted to create.

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.

These lamps are so practical yet elegant and unique. They’ll add a lot of character to our plain kitchen. The service levels were high - responsive and helpful.
