Retro Czech prismatic pendantsEra: 1970s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
Retro prismatic glass pendants with white Bakelite galleries salvaged from the former Czechoslovakia, perfect statement pendants for any circulation, living or kitchen area.
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)
Every one of our lights goes through a variety of processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage where it is ready for your project. The first and most important stage is fully dismantling each and every light - we do this even if we have hundreds of identical lights. We then undertake an in-depth review of its construction and following that, map its journey through restoration.
Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension chain, traditional silver braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.

I’ve now purchased five different products, over two homes refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed, packaging etc. 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.

Lighting is critical to any room and when it came to putting the finishing touches to our vintage kitchen, we came to skinflint, and we found exactly what we wanted.

We found exactly what we wanted at skinflint: large industrial pendant lights from an old Dunlop Aerospace factory. They fill the space beautifully and we often get asked where they were sourced. With such heritage attached to them, they are like a piece of history that adds to the modern vintage feel we wanted to create.
