Vintage 1950s electrical substation pendants

Era: 1950s

Vintage industrial lights salvaged from an electrical substation in the Northwest of the UK. The vitreous enamelled shades have a sleek neck and low profile perfect for lower ceiling heights. The enamel shows slight surface wear adding character and emphasising the heritage of the lights.

Restoration

Most modern bulbs, particularly environmentally friendly LED bulbs, are smaller than those the lights were originally designed to take. We redesign and adjust the positioning of the new lamp holder to give you a light that illuminates your space, perfectly.

Product details

Supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2mtrs of twisted silver braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable please just ask).

Thank you for the very careful crating and packing. The fixture is even better in person! We are so impressed with not only your inventory, but your outstanding customer service.
