Vintage 1950s French Wall Lights

Era: 1950s Origin: France

Salvaged wall lights by French manufacturer 'Mapelec of Amiens'. The lights have been refurbished by hand with an angled lacquered steel enclosure and original prismatic glass lens, and contrasting brass details. 

France

Origin: France

Vintage French lighting is often defined by the industrial lights of Jielde and Mapelec, but lighting companies throughout France have historically designed and manufactured lights for all applications. This variety is reflected in the styles of lights we salvage and restore - from the decorative Art Nouveau and Art Deco to the classic harder edged, clean-lined industrial aesthetic.

Restoration

Different materials require different processes. At skinflint we are fascinated by interesting surfaces and patinas, that’s why we tend not to repaint our lights as this can make them look too ‘new’ and they lose some of their of individuality. During the restoration, ferrous metals such as iron and steel will usually have a clear lacquer powder-coated onto the surface to prevent oxidisation. All forms of surface sealing are designed to protect and enhance the surface of the lights.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new screw E27 lamp holder.
