US traffic lights (Type 15 Raw)

Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.A

Salvaged 1950s American traffic lights by 'Eagle Signal' converted to suspended feature pendants. These statement lights have a simple stepped profile to the enclosure, which also features the 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.

Restoration

The lights have been refurbished and reassembled by hand, preserving the original paint finish with an interesting surface patina. The original internal reflectors have been retained and a new etched diffusion glass fitted. Suspended on a minimal stainless steel suspension system with a ceiling mounting which permits millimetric adjustment.

Product details

Each light is supplied with bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2metres of elephant grey braided power cable and a ceiling mounting system. (If you would prefer another colour cable please just ask).

A quick word from our customers

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

Excellent service

Good product listings with careful explanations. 

- Robert | Chichester | UK

Fantastic, so pleased

I have never received a more beautifully packaged item, the light itself is wonderful and we are very pleased.

A piece of history

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.
