Porcelain and glass wall lightEra: 1950s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
A substantial run of lights salvaged from a disused glass factory, with a moulded clear glass globe and porcelain base.
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.View all lights from Czechoslovakia (former)
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. Every light we reclaim has two tales to tell - its original use, and how it came to be salvaged. We’ll let you know its history but the next chapter is up to you.
Each light is supplied with a screw (E27) lamp holder. Suitable for use as both wall and ceiling fittings.
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.
Cool, quirky and creative, the inimitable Artist Residence hotel collection offers high-end artist-designed rooms and dining - featuring skinflint lights throughout.Read more ...

I am so delighted to have found this website - beautiful original lights that are reasonably priced! I was not disappointed when my two pendants arrived. The service was quick and efficient. The lights are amazing. I can't wait to get them up in our new kitchen over the island.
