Salvaged Czechoslovakian theatre floor lightEra: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
A vintage 1950s Czechoslovakian converted theatre floor light with an enamelled body and its original black paint finish, mounted to a steel medical stand.
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.View all lights from Czechoslovakia (former)

The theatre light can be angled and locked in position on the bracket, which is mounted to a brushed and lacquered steel telescopic stand dated 1967. (Maximum height: 2300mm | Minimum height: 1400mm)

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.
