Vintage 1930s Czech ceiling light

Era: 1930s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

An original 1930s ceiling light, salvaged from a residential interior in the Czech Republic. Featuring curved chrome-plated arms and a geometric central baluster, the light has both Art Deco and Cubism design influences. Comprising four tinted opaline glass shades, one enclosed on the underside and three open-topped shades to the upper, producing a warm glowing effect when illuminated.

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 processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage where it is ready for your home. From stripping down and rewiring, to applying a finish and sealing the light preventing further degradation to the surface. The vitreous enamelled steel shades have small amounts of localised wear and their original factory finish has been retained to the two part upper gallery, with original manufactures detailing, and an interesting surface patina.

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.

Wonderfully restored

Their product is invariably beautiful and wonderfully restored. To have lights that have seen so much and then get a second life is inspiring in many ways.

- Matthew | London | UK

Impeccable service & a fabulous range of industrial lights

Your service was impeccable & your beautiful quirky stock of the highest quality. I was lucky enough to visit your HQ in Cornwall whilst on holiday near there. What a wonderful creative sustainable environment you work in. Such a fabulous range of interesting industrial lights. I am delighted with my runway light & will tell everyone where it’s from!
