Salvaged Czechoslovakian projectorsEra: 1940s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)
Czechoslovakian wall mounted projectors, salvaged from a college, and originally manufactured by Meopta in the 1940s.
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)
Meopta was originally set up in 1933 producing optical lenses, it quickly expanded to producing products like enlargers, cameras and binoculars. They became one of the world's major manufacturers of cinema projectors between 1947 and 1970. These wall lights comprise of a black aluminium enclosure with the original convex lens. Mounted on a black steel wall bracket they can be adjusted and angled, they would work well to light an object or wall. Manufactures detailing and logo is embossed on the front of the lamp adding a nice detail.

Their product is invariably beautiful and wonderfully restored. To have lights that have seen so much and then get a second life is inspiring in many ways.

I’ve now purchased five different products over two home refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed and packaging it is spot on. It's only skinflint that make me wish I had another project to work on and a larger property to kit out.
