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

This statement floor light has a brushed and lacquered steel base complete with the original castors and switches. The polished spun aluminium shade can be angled laterally to adjust the direction of light. We take the time to investigate the history of a light, studying old catalogues. The extracts shown are from our own internal manufacturer's archive.

Product details

The light is supplied tested and rewired with four metres of elephant grey braided cable and a new screw (E27) lamp holder, new inline foot switch and a plug.

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.

Beautiful lights, very pleased with the quality. Excellent service overall from skinflint. 

- Miriam | Hampshire | UK

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

Victorian light

I love it. It arrived quickly and in perfect order. Many thanks.

- Lucy | London | UK

Wonderfully restored

Their product is invariably beautiful and wonderfully restored. To have lights that have seen so much and then get a second life is inspiring in many ways.
