About Pifco lights

Pifco, a Manchester-based firm, produced a vast range of different Christmas light sets for several decades up until the early 2000s. Their colourful designs of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are particularly fondly remembered.

These listings are an attempt at documenting the output of a company for which very little information exists online.
