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

Refurbished by the skinflint team, this light has been meticulously restored, with the original surface waxed and sealed by hand. The internal reflectors have been retained and three new etched diffusion glass fitted, creating a lovely even glow when illuminated. The light is suspended through a minimal stainless steel suspension system that allows milimetric adjustment.

Product details

Each light is supplied rewired and tested with three new socket (G9) lamp holders, 2 metres of elephant grey braided cable and a ceiling mounting kit.

Eagle

Manufacturer: Eagle

The Eagle Signal and Sign Company is one of the oldest traffic light manufacturers in the U.S. and were founded in 1931 in Moline, Illinois. Eagle became one of the market leaders of traffic signal lights, competing with other brands such as Crouse-Hinds and Marbelite, for control of the midwest American market. During the 1930s and 1940s Eagle manufactured a limited range of lights but often upgraded their designs with minor changes. In the 1950s and 1960s they went on to produce flat-back models and larger 12 inch designs.

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.
