Situated in the heart of Birmingham's renowned Jewellery Quarter, and literally within one hundred yards of the Lucas building (where many of the early vintage lamps we know today were originally manufactured) we are truly privileged to offer our bespoke services from a backdrop of such historical significance.

Being enthusiasts of the hand built beauty and grace of classic and vintage vehicles, we cater for clients as diverse as " the trader round the corner" to the "seasoned vintage car collector". And our passion runs as deep as yours!

We are ably adept at resurrecting what might, at first, appear to have perished with the passing of time. Treating every lamp as if they were our very own, and using traditional techniques, our reputation as leaders in vintage headlamp restoration goes from strength to strength.

With our help, advice, expertise and painstaking attention to detail, your lamps are returned to their former glory, that's our pledge! The Genius of the Lamp offers a variety of services which you'll find here under. If anything you desire is not listed please do not hesitate to contact us and we'll do our best to help or put you in the right direction.
