Retro nautical bulkhead lights

Era: 1950s

Streamlined oval nautical bulkheads in the Art Deco style salvaged from 1950s cruise ships. Original liner prismatic etched glass diffuser within polished aluminium enclosure featuring a vented grill design and integral hidden mountings.

Restoration

Once a light has undergone preparatory treatment and the degraded surface has been removed, the path is clear for us to bring it back to life. At skinflint we tend not to repaint surfaces, this would make the lights look too ‘new’ and they’d lose some of their individuality. So, with ferrous metals such as iron and steel, we wax-polish the surface on large rotating cotton wheels adding shine, grain and highlights to the casting details and bringing out the light’s character through surface and patina.
