Testimonials

"When I was considering the replacement of my Bleriot brass lamps on my 1909 vehicle I was referred to Genius of the Lamp in Birmingham by a Veteran Car Enthusiast in the South of Ireland.

In May 2009, while participating in a Rally in Dublin my car was involved in a minor collision resulting in significant damage to one of my two lamps. Neither lamp, it should be said, was in concours condition. As a result replacement was an option on the table.

I met with G.O.L. personnel at their Stand in Beaulieu in September of that year and there was sown the seed for a replacement pair of lamps. I took the advice of G.O.L. and settled on a fine pair of Bleriot lamps of the period but smaller in size and more appropriate to the car. One lamp had already been restored and was on display; the second would be available in the Spring of 2010.

I was very impressed with the quality of the workmanship and was assured that the second lamp would be restored to the very same condition. When I took delivery of the two 'restored' lamps they were exactly as I would have wished and the attention to detail was reflected in the quality of the finished work.

On the occasion of the same Rally in Dublin in 2010 I was proudly displaying my 'new' lamps when, to my misfortune, one of the lamps fell from the car during the drive - the bracket had broken and nothing to do with the construction of the lamp.

I reported back to G.O.L. and pleaded for their full co-operation in re-restoring the damaged lamp, to its original quality, in time for a September Rally. Their Order Books were full but they agreed to help me.

The Company worked tirelessly to produce the finished work within the specified time and to their credit it would be impossible to say which lamp had been re-worked for the second time. They remain a very high quality 'matched pair' of Bleriot lamps. The lamps enhance the character of my 1909 'Edwardian' car and continue to be the focus of admiration.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Genius of the Lamp, having also visited their Workshop in Hockley, to anyone who may be in need of high quality brass lamp restoration.

They have the expertise to tackle the most challenging of work and I can attest to that, having put them to the test!"
