Industrial items are usually items cleared from mid 1900s factories, as the golden age of manufacture drew to a close in Britain and old factories were pulled down or converted to housing. We also find items in Eastern Europe, often from Soviet era factories. Most of these industrial items were very solidly built from metal and quite often galvanised so they have outlived the premises from which they came. Typical items in this category are old rivetted water tanks, cast iron machine bases, factory chairs, old enamel lights and pigeon holes or other storage solutions. Many of these items make excellent, trendy shop fittings.
