Vintage Czech desk light

Era: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

A simple and stylish desk light salvaged from Czechoslovakia. Retaining the original pastel green finish to the aluminium shade, steel arm and base really makes this a light with character. The shade can be re-positioned through the lateral articulation of the arm.

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.
