US traffic lights (Type 19)

Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.A

An impressive feature light comprising of a set of three salvaged American traffic lights by MTS (McCain Traffic Supply). Now converted to a suspended light it is a statement piece ideal for the living room or kitchen. . The aluminium enclosure has been fully restored and polished, featuring cast branding, and fitted with a new etched glass screen to provide a diffused light when illuminated.

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

Once a light has undergone preparatory treatment and the degraded surface has been removed, our team patiently and sensitively restore each light to bring it back to life. At skinflint we tend not to repaint surfaces, preferring instead to stay true to the heritage and individual story of each light. These historical timepieces have been restored and polished, retaining their character with slight marks on the outer surface.

Product details

Each light is supplied tested and rewired with 3no. G9 lamp holders, 2metres of elephant grey braided power cable, and wire ceiling mounting system.

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.
