Equire about this product

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.

Manufacturer: Perihel

Perihel was a highly successful manufacturer of light therapy lamps for both professional and home use, manufacturing elegant light therapy lamps for the clinic and the home. We are unsure of their exact origins but from advertising literature we have in our own archive we can be sure that in the 1930s the company was based in Germany with production in Prague. Then, again based on its product pamphlets, by the 1940s and 1950s it had bases in the UK at Edge Street and Rabbit Row in London.
