Equire about this product

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

Each vintage light in our workshop undergoes preparatory treatment before we are able to bring it back to life. Retaining as many of the light’s original features as possible, the work we do is about respecting the heritage of each piece. So, with ferrous metals such as iron and steel, we linish the surface on large rotating wire wheels adding depth, grain and highlights to the casting details, thus bringing out the light’s character.

Product details

The light is supplied rewired and tested with a new screw (E27) lamp holder and elephant grey braided cable.

Manufacturer: Soltan

As with a number of the companies that emerged to satisfy the ever expanding home medical therapy lamp market in the 1950s, the origin of Soltan is currently unclear. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s the company produced numerous styles of table mounted heat lamps. Soltan Lamps all have a distinctive branded mark, for the lower priced basic models this was invariably a transfer - whereas the higher priced more exclusive lights featured an embossed plaque.
