Vintage pendant lightsEra: 1950s Origin: UK
Salvaged industrial pendant lights by "Coughtrie of Glasgow." Clear glass domes with polished two part aluminium enclosure complete with cast makers mark.
Lighting design in the UK 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, they constantly upgraded and improved their original designs. The products we salvage come from the old industrial heartland of England. This area of the UK was once the boiler room of the British economy - from the potteries of Stoke, through the engineering works of Birmingham, to the wool, textile and cotton mills of Oldham and Manchester.View all lights from UK
Over the years, we’ve restored thousands of lights that would otherwise have become scrap - examining, refurbishing and updating one part at a time. But we don’t only piece together the light’s components. We take the time to investigate its history, studying old catalogues for clues and assembling the whole story. The labels shown are from our own internal manufacturers archive and were taken from the original packaging for these particular products.
Supplied with new screw (E27) lamp holders, 2mtrs of suspension chain, elephant grey braided cable and ceiling mounting plate.
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.
Established in 1941 on Montrose Avenue, Hillington Estate, Glasgow, Scotland, Coughtrie is one of the few companies from this period still in operation. Their name continues to be associated with reliable industrial wall or ceiling mounted bulkhead fittings. Over the years we have salvaged many beautiful lights made by Coughtrie, with their classic castings; lights that have in most cases, outlasted the buildings for which they were originally designed.View all Coughtrie Lights

What a great light - we're really happy with it! Delivery time was really quick too. Will be purchasing other lights from you in due course.

Lighting is critical to any room and when it came to putting the finishing touches to our vintage kitchen, we came to skinflint - and we found exactly what we wanted.
