Industrial Czechoslovakian pendants (M)Era: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
Industrial Czechoslovakian pendants. Glass dome with enamel reflector and Bakelite lamp enclosure.
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)
Once we’ve salvaged a collection of lights, we bring them home to our studio and begin the slow process of restoration. Each light is disassembled and we examine every component for damage and flaws, so we know which can be kept, and which need to be replaced. We then hand over to our experts – in-house and locally – to carefully restore each component by hand. That often begins with soda-blasting (an environmentally friendly way to remove old paint), before hand-polishing, lacquering and rewiring.
Supplied with new bronzed bayonet (B22) lamp holders, 2mtrs of suspension chain, traditional bronze braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. As with all our products, should you require a different colour cable just let us know.

I toyed with this light for ages before I bought it, thinking it was a lot of money. When I eventually ordered and received the light, I was not disappointed. I love this light, so heavy, chunky and in my eyes, gorgeous. It will look brilliant in my dining room, in my newly renovated farmhouse.
