Vintage Lighting Prop Hire



Get in touch with our prop hire team for your next production at


We hold Europe’s largest selection of authentic vintage lights for hire, with an ever-growing collection of over 5,000 original pieces on our shelves ready for UK next day delivery and express shipping worldwide.


We salvage and restore lights from the 1920s to the 1970s, covering Czech crystal to large quantities of Eastern Bloc bulkheads and 1940s factory pendants. Our lights feature in wide ranging productions, including works by Warner Brothers, Paramount, Marvel, Netflix and Apple TV.


At the core of our ethos is sustainability, and our prop hire service is no exception. We stop lights from going to landfill, and by hiring them we can continue to do so, giving them a new chapter in their story, whilst also helping your production reduce its emissions or reach albert certification.


Each light has a story to tell, and our workshop can place their era, origin, and heritage, meaning you can be sure that authenticity is guaranteed when hiring our lights for your set. Our lights are approved by the UK Lighting Industry Association (LIA), each one brought up to modern safety and environmental standards.


Whether you’re dressing a period piece or a high-tech lab, our expert team will help you find the perfect light for your production.

“We were looking to source interesting runs of pendant and wall lights and skinflint had such a wide range of options. The service was excellent and delivery couldn’t have been more straightforward.”
