Although these fittings were traditionally used to illuminate shopfronts, signage and billboards, these lights were interestingly utilised as a fixture within Canterbury cathedral with the primary purpose of illuminating renaissance artwork.
These lights were discovered during the restoration of part of the cathedral; due to their provenance, we made the decision to conserve these lights to retain their original character and thus preserve the evidence of their previous life. Comprised of a parabolic steel dome, adorned with classical green enamel and tastefully complemented with speckled grey braided cable.

I was searching for something different, with a unique story and a history – and I found it. The quality is second-to-none, and the overall service was exceptional. I’ll be ordering another set as soon as the renovations are completed.

I am totally in love with my new light that has given the hallway some new life! The quality and attention to detail is exceptional. I can’t recommend Joseph Clark enough, from start to finish they have been great with answering my questions and making sure the light was exactly what I was after and delivered on time. I now want a light for every room!

I ordered two of the larger lights from Joseph Clark. After having them fitted in my loft they have created an industrial atmosphere which has surpassed my expectations. These lights came extremely well packaged so arrived in great original condition - I would definitely use them again.
