They have been redesigned into hanging lights with brass fitments and hanging chains.All the names and measurements give each light an individual look. Bulbs and chains not included with lighting.

Milker Design

The 'Milker' design was named after its pervious job of measuring the amount of milk produced by one or two cows. Each parlour would have around 7-9 of these 'Milkers'. They are unique coming in different curves and shapes. 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 is suspended by brass chains and hooks. The glass has all the original printed details and imperfections. The milk meter and companies like Fullwood & Afla Laval give the light its 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.
