Russian 1960s surgical lamps

Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.S.R (former)

A pair of impressive and historic Russian surgical floor lamps, originally designed and manufactured in the 1960s and once used in military field hospitals across the CCCP. Each light and its components have been meticulously disassembled and restored by hand including the four original lenses and reflectors.

Origin: U.S.S.R (former)

Many of the products we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc were produced in the former U.S.S.R. and are defined by a clean industrial aesthetic. As with other Communist countries, the same design was often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage. Lights from this region are often defined by their distinctive light green, two-tone colourways.

Restoration

Where possible we keep the light’s original finish in respect of its history and heritage. The light’s raw painted finish has been sealed and retained to the upper arm, lamp head, and wheeled base, and original features such as the switches and dials are still present on the base. There is a lockable adjustment of the upper arm at the stand juncture with a 180-degree rotation of the lamp head. The extracts shown are the original instructions that we were able to salvage with the light.

Product details

The light is supplied rewired and tested with 4no. new E14 screw lamp holders, 4 metres of elephant grey braided cable, an inline switch and a plug.

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks great and I am really pleased with it.
