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

different markets.

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

and connectors.

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.
