Soltan table light

Era: 1950s Origin: UK

A classic 1950s converted British heat lamp by Soltan. The simple and refined style of the lamp, with a polished chrome plated shade, lacquered cast steel base and arms, is nicely contrasted with the original thermoplastic handles.

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

Before a light can be restored, any damaged outdated components will require repair or replacing. As part of this work we replace original imperial screws with their modern-day metric counterparts and rework their screw ports to take them. We replace the original electrics with brand new, fully certified EN60598 components - this gives you peace of mind, knowing your vintage light is as safe to use as any modern light.

Soltan

Manufacturer: Soltan

As with a number of the companies that emerged to satisfy the ever expanding home medical therapy lamp market in the 1950s, the origin of Soltan is currently unclear. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s the company produced numerous styles of table mounted heat lamps. Soltan Lamps all have a distinctive branded mark, for the lower priced basic models this was invariably a transfer - whereas the higher priced more exclusive lights featured an embossed plaque.

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.

Spot on

I’ve now purchased five different products over two home refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed and packaging it is spot on. It's only skinflint that make me wish I had another project to work on and a larger property to kit out.
