Motorbike small table lamp
Unique steampunk table light from GB Salvage. Made by a metal artist in South East Cornwall, we love this one off table light. It’s made from primarily motorbike parts and skillfully converted into a one off desk light.
Base width ~18cm
We find, restore and make unique lighting products and light fittings. We convert all manner of interesting items into lighting products. It could be called salvage or up cycling, but we just love making lights.
Over the years GB Salvage have become specialists in industrial and aeroplane furniture and lighting. We also seem to attract large runs of heavy duty industrial lights ready for conversion to LED and re-spraying.
We also stock a lot of salvaged ships lights, being based in Plymouth, Devon. These can be either ex military or civilian ships,
Our Lighting Conversions & Creations
Some of our creations have included mild steel pipework lighting, copper pipe jewellery and bedside lights. In 2016 we even made a range of titanium pipe pendants from an aeroplane exhaust system. We also convert items never meant to be lights into modern and unique light fittings. We’ve made lights out of gramophone speakers, 747 engine casings, plane fuselage and missile or bomb bases we’ve acquired from the MOD. There’s no limit these days to what can be up cycled, the more unusual and bonkers the better.
Marine salvage theme. We source a huge variety of ship, boat and submarine stock being based in Plymouth, Devon. GB Salvage buy marine salvaged components primarily to upcycle and make lighting and furniture with. On occasion though we have to be realistic about space and part with some pieces we haven’t yet got to working on. As such you’ll find a range of finishes from untouched through to completed, converted and polished.
We specialise in ships lights and floodlights but also offer ships telescopes, ships binoculars, dials, instruments and fenders for example. Occasionally we’ll find something really special such as our amazing yellow submarines.
If you have a particular requirement or idea please get in touch. We’ve supplied a load of lobster pots for use in retail displays for example.
On occasion we do offer items out for hire, normally to film companies but also for launch parties and commercial functions.
