Truman's Black Eagle Brewery
The lights were salvaged from Truman's Black Eagle Brewery, one of east London's most iconic landmarks. First founded in 1679 it then became the largest brewery in the world by the mid 1800's and is referenced in Charles Dickens novel David Copperfield. The site was developed in the 1990's and 2000's and this run of lights from a back part brewery, were taken down and have been in storage since, a rare opportunity to own a piece of London's rapidly disappearing history.....
The lights have been re wired with modern electrical components, the shades show minor signs of cosmetic in places in the form of chips the the enamel and rust spots.
