Moulded Czech glass pendant lights (V5)

Era: 1960s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Dainty retro 1960s glass pendant lights produced in former Czechoslovakia and salvaged from a civic building in Prague. The open-bottomed glass shade has prismatic detailing to the inside and a jewelled-effect moulded design to the outer. Eye-catching feature pendants with or without the lights turned on. Suspend asymmetrically in pairs or clusters for maximum effect.

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

Every one of our lights goes through a variety of restoration processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage where it is refurbished and updated for modern-day use ready for your home. From stripping down and rewiring, to meticulously reviewing which components can be kept or replaced, we finish by sealing the light to prevent further degradation to the surface - securing their use for many more decades to come.

A quick word from our customers

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

Thank you skinflint for allowing me to add character to my espresso bar and work desk space! And thanks as well for the fabulous customer service.

Beautifully restored Thorlux pendants

The lights definitely bring a sense of authentic character and history to the space. It's the truth when I say I had the lights before I even had final house plans!
