Art Deco wall lights

Era: 1930s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

1930s Czech wall lights with a lovely streamlined Art Deco style. The bakelite body has ribbed detailing with an opaline glass shade. An integral toggle switch allows the lights to be switched independently, with a sprung end enclosure to release the glass.

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 have three guiding principles: To salvage the best lighting from the 1920s to the 1970s; To restore every piece sensitively - without compromising its character; To restore each fixture to the highest modern standards.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder. (If you would prefer an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).
