1930s elegant German pendant lights

Era: 1930s Origin: Germany

A large number of 1930s Art Deco German opaline pendant lights, featuring the original chrome-plated gallery. The open-bottomed opaline glass shade provides a soft, even glow when lit with an element of downward illumination. Elegant in style, they make for real statement pendants at home or in commercial settings.

Origin: Germany

German designs are famed for their clean lined and well engineered approach. The Bauhaus School played a major role in combining design with engineering during the late 1920s and early 1930s. A number of lights we salvage were influenced by Bauhaus School design. From the mid to late 20th century, Communist East Germany produced a wide variety of lights for both industrial, commercial and residential applications, often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Restoration

In the mid 20th century, lights were designed with care and made to last. The work we do at skinflint is based on respecting and preserving the heritage of each piece. Every light we reclaim has two tales to tell - its original use, and how it came to be salvaged.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of nickel suspension chain, traditional silver braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).
