Salvaged Hungarian railway signal lightsEra: 1950s Origin: Hungary
A stunning run of prismatic railway lights salvaged from decommissioned signalling equipment in Hungary with many refined details making them real feature pendants for any interior.
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.View all lights from Hungary
The lights have been carefully refurbished and reassembled by hand, the substantial steel enclosure has been brushed and lacquered, along with the polished aluminium bezel and prismatic glass lens that sit within the enclosure. Refined details on these fittings include the originally sprung anti-vibration rings, which dampened any movement from the passing trains.
Each light is supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension chain, elephant grey braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable or wire suspension, please just ask).
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.

I am so delighted to have found this website - beautiful original lights that are reasonably priced! I was not disappointed when my two pendants arrived. The service was quick and efficient. The lights are amazing. I can't wait to get them up in our new kitchen over the island.
