Product Description

These are without doubt the most unique lights we have for sale…

Salvaged from a WWII Spitfire Merlin engine which  lay at the bottom of the sea for 40 years after the Spitfire aircraft they helped power crashed off the Dorset coast in November 1940.  On recovery, very little remained of the aircraft due to the corrosive  attack of sea water but the engine and propellers were buried in the mud and were in good condition.

The patina to the outside of the piston liners is outstanding and has only been lightly cleaned and waxed to maintain this.

A slim band of copper has been added to provide interesting contrast.

Unique cylinder lights with an industrial look. Fitted with an atmospheric Edison style filament bulb (supplied).  Eye catching and beautiful…

Cylinder lights look fabulous hung in rows.

Two currently for sale with more available once restored.

Rewired with approx 1m of 3 core braided flex and new bayonet fitting (size B22). PAT tested by an independent electrician.

Supplied with approx 1m of matching chain and a simple brass ceiling plate.
