Hungary

Origin: Hungary

We salvage high volumes of industrial and decorative lighting from this landlocked former Eastern Bloc country. Hungarian industrial enamel shades are often available in blue or white, whereas the decorative glassware has more of a clean line and timeless design. In the mid to late 20th century, the Communist east produced a wide variety of lights for both industrial, commercial and residential applications often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Restoration

Each original vintage light in our oxide collection has been restored to ensure their deep russet tones and authentic heritage shines on. The lights feature an interesting array of rich surface patinas and specially treated steel or iron enclosures that have been sealed in our workshop to prevent further ageing.
