G.E.C British street lantern

Luminaire Reference: 17_2785

A vintage reclaimed 1950s 'Clearside 5580/1/2' street lantern by 'The General Electric Co. Ltd' the leading manufacturer of street lighting from the 1930s-1960s.

The light comprises of a two-part polished aluminium enclosure that features a prominent cast makers mark and branding to the top side. The original prismatic glass reflector also features manufacturers branding and was designed to provide uniformed light to a road. Very often the glass reflectors were damaged due to the wear and tear of daily life illuminating a British street. As a result, these pendants are not very often available in large numbers, making each one a unique find.

The light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension wire, elephant grey braided cable and ceiling mounting plate.(If you would prefer another colour cable, chain suspension or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).

The catalogue extracts shown are taken from our own internal manufacturers archive. Circa 1950.
