Love this


This rare vintage 1950s electric fan with it's gorgeous chrome cage and riveted bladed has been beautifully upcycled by hand into a stylish desk lamp, complete with a vintage oversized mirrored globe bulb with double helix spiral filament.

The old electric fan has been cleaned and polished while retaining some of the patina, before being fitted with an chrome antique style light fitting holding an oversized gunmetal smoke mirrored vintage Edison style globe bulb with a double helix spiral filament producing a lovely warm glow.

These vintage Edison style LED bulbs are cooler than the traditional incandescent bulbs as they use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, and have up to 30,000 hours lifespan.

The fan has been completely rewired with a vintage style braided cable and 3 pin plug, and has also been fitted with two vintage style chrome switches to independently control the fan and the light.

All fittings are genuine British parts, all hand-wired to a high, professional standard and are PAT tested.

This is an original vintage item so there may be some natural wear and tear which adds to the character of the lamp.

Thank you so much for taking time to look at our handmade item, and please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.


We came across this gorgeous old vintage electric fan from the 1950s and wondered if we could do something with it. The fan still worked so after a little though and a lot of hard work and effort, we realised that we were able to upcycle it and give it an additional purpose as a desk lamp by rewiring and adding a light fitting paying great attention to detail and adding high quality fittings.
