Retro Czech wall lights (pale yellow)

Era: 1960s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

Distinctive 1960s glass and Bakelite surface-mounted lights which were originally manufactured in former Czechoslovakia. The lights comprise a removable moulded glass shade with a yellow tint which produces a striking patterned hue and effect once illuminated.

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. 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.
