Czechoslovakian theatre lightsEra: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
A run of salvaged 1950s vintage Czechoslovakian theatre lights, with their heritage emphasised by the original manufacturer's plaque.
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.View all lights from Czechoslovakia (former)
The skinflint team have preserved the original black paint finish of these enamelled shades- as a result, each light has its own unique surface patina. A new etched glass screen has been fitted which provides an even glow when the lights are lit. They can be angled and locked in position on the bracket, making them ideal for lighting an object or focusing light on a wall.
Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of industrial black suspension chain, elephant grey braided cable and ceiling mounting plate.(If you would prefer another colour cable, wire suspension or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.

I’ve now purchased five different products over two home refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed and packaging it is spot on. It's only skinflint that make me wish I had another project to work on and a larger property to kit out.
