Vintage church wall lights (V1)

Era: 1950s

These vintage 1950s aluminium and brass wall lights were salvaged from St Barnabas church in Bethnal Green, East London. They were originally installed in 1957 and recently removed during a period of renovation.

 

Restoration

The elegant conical polished aluminium shade is mounted to the original polished brass arm and new wall mounting plate. A ball and knuckle joint allows the shade to be angled to focus the direction of light to a wall or object. At skinflint all original electrical elements are removed and replaced with brand new, certified components (EN60598 if your electrician asks). Any pre-wired lights are then rewired, tested and certified in line with electrical safety standards BS EN 60598. That way you have a light you can rely on every day, for decades to come.

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.
