1950s Eastern Bloc machinists lights

Era: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Vintage Czech machinists lights salvaged from a former industrial site. The aluminium shade can be angled so the direction of light can be focused to an object. At the base and shade the light can be fully rotated while the steel arms have lockable lateral adjustment.

Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Much of the lighting we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc was produced in the manufacturing powerhouses of the former Czechoslovakia. Under Communist rule the same design was often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage. The country is also famed for its beautiful glassware, with both wall and ceiling opaline glass lights often being used in public and residential settings, such as housing blocks and schools.

Restoration

At Skinflint all original electrical elements are removed and replaced with brand new, certified components (EN60598 if your electrician asks). Any pre-wired lights are then rewired, tested and certified in line with electrical safety standards BS EN 60598. That way you have a light you can rely on every day, for decades to come.
