1950's Industrial Benjamin Enamelled Pendant Lamps 16 Inch - Pair. Benjamin was arguably the market leader in industrial lighting in the 1930's through to 1960's. Their main market was providing tough enamelled lamps to large factories. These lamps came from the Eastleigh train yards on the South Coast. The Eastleigh yard opened in 1891 and has an illustrious history including producing parts for Blenheim bombers and Horsa gliders for D-Day. Made from spun and enamelled steel the lamps were covered in paint, grease and dirt which was removed to reveal lamps in exceptional original condition. Each lamp has been cleaned and restored and all electrical components have been removed and replaced with modern European CE standard components to BS EN 60598. Each lamp is individually tested and labelled to BS EN 60598. INCLUDED: Each lamp comes completely wired and ready to install including; 2 metres of wire for hanging the lamps, 2 metres of black silk covered electrical cable and a ceiling hook as shown. The lamp is fitted with a standard E27 threaded lamp holder for which a wide range of modern and vintage style filament bulbs are widely available. We do not currently sell bulbs and recommend LED bulbs 6W maximum. We select the best colour/style of cable for each lamp but additional colours are available for different projects. Our alternative cable colours (in stock) are as shown in the images with numbered cables. If you wish to select a different cable colour please state the colour number in the comments at checkout. Additional special order colours are available and we can also supply more than 2 metres of hanging cable/wire/chain etc as required, please contact us separately to discuss. We are specialists in refurbishment of vintage lighting, please contact us with any questions regarding purchase or installation.
