The Thorlux ladies

Just came across this grainy old 1940's photograph of the Thorlux factory in Birmingham. The ladies can be seen applying foil stickers to the stacks of vitreous enamelled shades that Thorlux built its name on. Whilst many dream of foreign holidays and lottery wins, this is the kind of stash of lighting that we at Trainspotters fantasize about coming across at the back of some warehouse. We normally carry decent runs of mid-century reclaimed viteous enamelled lighting in stock. We are also re-manufacturing high quality vitreous enamelled shades ourselves, also made in Birmingham.
