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

These interesting fittings have an elegant conical polished aluminium shade which is mounted to the original polished brass arm and 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.

Product details

Each light is supplied tested and rewired with a new screw (E27) lamp holder and olive green braided cable.

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.
