Vintage industrial lighting

Era: 1950s

Vintage industrial light salvaged from a factory in the Midlands, UK. Vitreous enamelled spun steel shade with vents to permit uplighting. Slight wear to the enamel adds character and emphasises the age and industrial heritage of the products.

Once a light has undergone preparatory treatment and the degraded surface has been removed, the path is clear for us 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 wax-polish the surface on large rotating cotton wheels adding shine, grain and highlights to the casting details and bringing out the light’s character through surface and patina.
