A one-off vintage floor standing medical lamp by British manufacturer Hanovia. Now fully refurbished and restored, the light has mainly lacquered steel and polished aluminium detailing. Mounted to the three-legged base is a telescopic stand and large reflector. Complete with its original manufacturer's plaque this is a light with a story to tell. It can be angled and adjusted to provide illumination where desired, perfect as a reading or task light.

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

Over the years, we’ve restored thousands of lights that would otherwise have been lost forever - 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.

Manufacturer's Catalogue

This image of our 1930s Hanovia Floor Light is taken from an original manufacturer's catalog from our archive, a Hanvonia instruction handbook for prescription ultra-violet lamps. It is accompanied by an original letter dating back to March 1930 from the manufacturer.

Hanovia

Manufacturer: Hanovia

Established in 1924 and based on Bath Road, Slough, Buckinghamshire, Hanovia were industry experts in developing UV and heat lamp technology. Many floor and table-mounted versions were developed over a 50 year period for home and professional use. The success of the designs is clear - similar models remained in production for many years with only very small adjustments to tweak the design efficiency of the lights. Although the business activities have diversified, the company still specialises in UV technology over 90 years later, from the same west London site.
