1970s cut glass Czech chandelier (V1)

Era: 1970s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Making a real feature piece within any lighting scheme, this 1970's retro cut glass chandelier was salvaged from former Czechoslovakia. The three moulded glass enclosures have been designed to enhance the direction of light when illuminated. The original paint finish on the main housings and ceiling rose has also been retained.

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.

Love the lights, love your ethos. Absolutely what more companies need to be doing. I have my Retro Czech Ceiling Lights (V2) in my dining room and the spray of light they give off is gorgeous and unusual.
