1970s Czech ceiling lights (circular)

Era: 1970s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

1970s cut glass surface-mounted lights salvaged from former Czechoslovakia. Featuring a distinctive and decorative, moulded circular glass shade which casts a striking patterned effect when illuminated. With a low profile this is a versatile piece suitable for wall or ceiling mounting, particularly in areas short on space.

Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

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.

Restoration

In the mid 20th century, lights were designed with care and made to last. The work we do at skinflint is based on respecting and preserving the heritage of each piece we salvage. This ensures that every light we reclaim lives on to tell its tale: from its original use, to how it came to be discovered and restored. The next chapter of the story is up to you.

Love the lights, love your ethos. Absolutely what more companies need to be doing. I have my Retro Czech Ceiling Lights (V2) in my dining room and the spray of light they give off is gorgeous and unusual.
