ALL ABOUT US & OUR LANTERNS
The years following the second world war saw an explosion
in the range and styles of specialist stage and film lighting.
Many classic designs and brands appeared on the market
and revolutionised the way stages were illuminated
Now with the coming of digital and LED technologies the last
of these classic designs are being retired.
With many years practical hands-on experience of working
with these period lanterns we are ideally placed to source
and re-engineer them for today's customers in
We are based in Cornwall and have both restored and as-found
lanterns for sale. We can also re-wire and finish lanterns to
your specifications or any stage of completion.
Restorations can include stripping back to bare metal and
either powder-coating to any RAL colour or polishing
to a mirror finish.
Lanterns can be refitted with a variety of lamp-holders, cable
Options include barn-doors, period or contemporary stands,
or a range of hanging clamps
All restored lanterns are tested for electrical safety before despatch and
come with a PAT certificate.
We can also undertake search commissions, so if there is a particular
style or make of lantern that you require -please give us a call.
If you are uncertain as to the type of lantern but know the
effect or look you want we are always available
to advise you.
