Germany

Origin: Germany

German designs are famed for their clean lined and well engineered approach. The Bauhaus School played a major role in combining design with engineering during the late 1920s and early 1930s. A number of lights we salvage were influenced by Bauhaus School design. From the mid to late 20th century, Communist East Germany produced a wide variety of lights for both industrial, commercial and residential applications, often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Restoration

Slight wear to the enamel and the original paintwork of the wall bracket adds character and emphasises the age of the products. The catalogue extracts shown are taken from our own internal manufacturers archive. Circa 1950.

Bibliotheque Lights

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.

- Steve | London | UK

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.
