Salvaged Polish machinists lights

Era: 1960s Origin: Poland

Sensational run of oversized machinists work lights salvaged from a factory in Poland. These make stunning centre pieces when utilised over merchandise islands within retail spaces or as feature table lights in a residential environment.

Poland

Origin: Poland

Many of the products we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc were produced in Poland. As with the majority of lights designed and manufactured under Communist rule - during the period from the end of the Second World War to the fall of the Berlin wall - they are defined by a clean industrial aesthetic, with the same design often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Just what I had been looking for

I was very happy with the products I received. They arrived quickly and were packed brilliantly and professionally. There was no way they were going to be damaged in transit.
