The Crown and Thistle

Specified by: People In Space

A large selection of Skinflints vintage lights were specified by People in Space for the impressive interior of this Oxfordshire Inn. The Crown & Thistle, at the heart of Abingdon-on-Thames, is a stunning modern interpretation of a traditional coaching inn and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. We were pleased to supply a vast array of fixtures for the project, highlights included vintage American cargo lights, hospital X Ray illuminators and our ever popular British etched glass pendants from the 1950s....
