These old glass blown milk jars were used in West Country diary farms in the early 60s-70s. There have been redesigned into hanging lights with brass fitments and hanging chains. All the names and measurements give each light an individual look. Bulbs not included with lighting.


Receiver Design

The 'receiver' design was named after its pervious jobs of measuring the amount of milk produced by a herd. Changing to this pyrex blown old glass in the 1960's, dairy farms all over the United Kingdom used them for years until converting to the next technology leaving behind beautifully crafted mechanism.

Refurbishing the Pyrex jars of its past duties and adding brass fitments. The light us suspended by brass chains and hooks. The glass has all the original printed details and imperfections. The milk meter and companies like Fullwood & Alfa Laval give the light it's authenticity.

Based in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath, Simon and Frauke Jackson are a husband and wife team who not only deal in antique furniture but also undertake the high quality restoration of the same.

They met in 1983 at West Dean College in Sussex where they trained for their diplomas in furniture restoration. Simon had previously attended Brunel Technical College in Bristol, obtaining a City and Guilds qualification in restoration, and Frauke had served a three year cabinet making apprenticeship in her native Germany.

Following several years employment in London they moved to Bath in 1987 and established their own workshop.

Dealing in antique furniture followed as a natural progression from its restoration and Simon and Frauke now regularly attend fairs in both England and Northern Europe enjoying a large and loyal customer following in both areas.

For Simon and Frauke customer service is of paramount importance. Aware of the changing trends within the antique business they recognise the need to diversify and are constantly striving to satisfy their customer's requirements. Hence, decorative and painted furniture is now included within their range of stock.
