Vintage period hallway lights

Era: 1950s Origin: UK

Original 1950s period ceiling lights. The opaline glass globe diffuses the light creating an even glow and distribution of light when it is illuminated. Refurbished and polished by hand, the original aluminum base gives the lights a classic vintage style.

Origin: UK

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.

Restoration

The final step of the restoration process of each light is reassembly. All of the components, both new and refurbished, are meticulously pieced together in our workshops. Each light is then photographed and added to our collection alongside information about its origins and history we’ve discovered through our research. What happens next is up to you.

Product details

Each light is supplied with new screw (E27) lamp holder. If you would prefer an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask.
