Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Much of the lighting we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc was produced in the manufacturing powerhouses of 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

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. These pendants are a classic retro Czech style with a delicate moulded glass design. Now each light has been meticulously restored by our experts ready for modern-day use.

Lustry Kamenicky Senov

Manufacturer: Lustry Kamenicky Senov

Following WWII, all chandelier companies based in the Kamenicky Senov region of former Czechoslovakia (an area with a rich history of decorative glasswork) were put under joint administration by the state under a new name - Lustry Kamenicky Senov. In the 1960s, this new company primarily specialised in producing glass lighting and chandeliers for domestic use and the USSR. Though they later expanded into pendants and floor lights, their most iconic creation was the elegant crystal glass chandeliers known as the ‘Theresians’, which were inspired by 18th-century Bohemian chandeliers made for Empress Maria Theresa.
