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 cast iron lacquered stand features original cast detailing on the four legged base 'Kennett & Lindsell Gopsall Street, London'. A nice feature is the foot pedal which allows the stem to be raised and lowered.

Fire Engine Searchlight

I love the light and Cara was fantastic with bulb advice and sending me a copy of the picture of the engine it came from. Great service thanks.

Brilliant customer service

I am extremely happy with skinflint's products and customer service. Pansy was very approachable and understanding. She was also very quick to respond to any queries and always followed up any emails or telephone conversations.

A piece of history

We found exactly what we wanted at skinflint: large industrial pendant lights from an old Dunlop Aerospace factory. They fill the space beautifully and we often get asked where they were sourced. With such heritage attached to them, they are like a piece of history that adds to the modern vintage feel we wanted to create.
