Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

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.

Restoration

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.
