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 main light housing of steel construction has been soda blasted to remove the degraded medical paint and then powder coated. All the original lenses and reflectors have been meticulously restored and retained. The bracket allows the light to be angled providing focus where needed.

Product details
