On one of our last sourcing trips before the Coronavirus pandemic hit, we were fortunate enough to visit the Bohemia area of the Czech Republic. Famed for its long and celebrated history of intricate and crystal-clear Bohemian glassware, the trip and haul of vintage lights we discovered there didn’t disappoint.

Twelve months (and a few lockdowns) later, after a meticulous restoration process the lights are ready for the next chapter of their lives, and we are excited to share our unique collection of crystal glassware lights with you.

The collection features a range of blown, hand-cut, prismatic and patterned glass pieces including retro pendants and chandeliers from the renowned Bohemia glassworks of Lustry Kamenicky Senov. Each light has been sensitively restored and updated for modern LED technologies by our lighting experts.

skinflint brass czech pendantsAbove: A pair of our retro Czechoslovakian cross-cut diamond glass pendants make an eye-catching statement piece when suspended at asymmetric heights within the room, particularly above a coffee or bar table seen here.

Whether coveting a one-off statement piece, or looking to create a clustered lighting installation using smaller glass pendants, the pieces in this collection will add opulence and a sense of retro glamour to your space. Why not do as we’ve done here, and accessorize yours with a home bar and a retro cocktail classic.
