Era: 1960s Origin: Poland

Substantial run of vintage lights salvaged from 1960s decommissioned Polish trams. Polished chrome bezel, refinished rear enclosure and opaline convex glass diffuser. 

Poland

Origin: Poland

Many of the products we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc were produced in Poland. As with the majority of lights designed and manufactured under Communist rule - during the period from the end of the Second World War to the fall of the Berlin wall - they are defined by a clean industrial aesthetic, with the same design often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Restoration

As depicted within the associated images these lights were installed within the Konstal 13N tram produced in the years 1959-1969 by production plant Konstal in Chorzow. The 13N was a Polish copy of the Czechoslovakian Tatra T1 produced by CKD which supplied most of the trams in the Eastern Bloc. Can be used in either a vertical or horizontal orientation making them suitable for both wall and ceiling applications.

An aperture within either wall or ceiling of 205mm and recessing depth of 40mm is required for installation.

A quick word from our customers

1940s Industrial lights

Couldn't justify spending at the higher end of Skinflint's product range as out of my budget but the quality of what I bought being around a third of the cost of their top end items is exceptional. Recommended

A piece of history

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.
