XXL salvaged surgical pendant light

Era: 1950s Origin: France

A true statement piece salvaged from a French hospital. Having undergone lengthy refurbishment, this large 1950s overhead surgical light retains its original features including glass lenses, reflectors and arm articulation allowing the light to be angled where needed.

Origin: France

Vintage French lighting is often defined by the industrial lights of Jielde and Mapelec, but lighting companies throughout France have historically designed and manufactured lights for all applications. This variety is reflected in the styles of lights we salvage and restore - from the decorative Art Nouveau and Art Deco to the classic harder edged, clean-lined industrial aesthetic.

Restoration

The restoration process our vintage lighting goes through can often take many months. On this particular piece, the main light housing of steel construction was soda blasted to remove its degraded surface of medical paint and then sealed again through powder coating. All of the original glass lenses and reflectors have been meticulously restored and retained, while the main arm bracket allows the light to be angled providing focus as desired.

I am so delighted to have found this website - beautiful original lights that are reasonably priced! I was not disappointed when my two pendants arrived. The service was quick and efficient. The lights are amazing. I can't wait to get them up in our new kitchen over the island.
