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

Every one of our lights goes through a variety of refurbishment processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to being at a stage ready for your home. This may involve everything from stripping down and rewiring damaged and old components, to applying finishes and sealing the light to prevent further degradation to the surface. It’s a long and meticulous process, all carried out by our UK-based lighting experts.

Product details

Each light is supplied tested and rewired with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder.
