Vintage opal Czech pendant lights

Era: 1970s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Superb Czechoslovakian pendant lights salvaged from a school in Prague. The matt opal glass provides a subtle surface finish with the added interest of the ribbed detailing to the enclosure. The upper gallery is a brushed and lacquered steel which provides a nice contrast of materials.

Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

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.

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.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension chain, traditional silver braided cable and a ceiling mounting plate.
