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

Lights bearing the iconic REVO stamp once illuminated the streets, railways, and factory floors that served the hotbed of British industry in the 1920s-1960s. In a competitive marketplace, REVO reinvented its brand many times over the decades in keeping with the technological development of their lights and the design trends of each era. During restoration in our workshop, we often come across these differing logos alluding to their date of manufacture, allowing us to record and date each light accurately. Honouring the original design, we tailor each light’s restoration accordingly, preserving their heritage and ensuring their use for decades more to come.

Manufacturer: REVO

REVO was founded in the early 20th century and became a household name in the 1930s, when electric street lighting was widely introduced throughout the UK. Based in Tipton, Staffordshire, REVO engineers were famed for their creativity, often developing styles of lighting individual to the towns for which they were designed. This means that whilst there are a wealth of classic REVO styles, from prismatics and enamels to machinist lights and bulkheads, there are also some incredible individual rarities to be found.

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.
