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

The light has its original 1930s paint finish to the base, upper arm and lamp head. The height can be adjusted through a counter-weight mechanism within the chrome plated upright stand. The lamp head comprises a large reflector and original glass screen with full adjustment and rotation.

Product details

The light is supplied rewired and tested with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 4 metres of elephant grey braided cable, an inline switch and a plug.
