Vintage head lamp (MK1)

Era: 1920s

Stunning head lamp pendant with original prismatic glass lens and internal reflector converted to a suspended feature luminaire. The interesting and varied surface patinas add individual character and have been 'frozen' in time via the application of clear lacquer. 

Restoration

Once a light has undergone preparatory treatment and the degraded surface has been removed, we then begin the journey to bring it back to life. At skinflint we tend not to repaint surfaces, this would make the lights look too ‘new’ and they’d lose some of their individuality. So, with ferrous metals such as iron and steel, we linish the surface on large rotating wire wheels adding depth, grain and highlights to the casting details and bringing out the light’s character through surface and patina.
