XL Czech opaline globe light

Era: 1960s Origin: Czechoslovakia (former)

These giant globe shaped pendants began life in former Czechoslovakia in the 1960s, hanging from the ceilings of luxury hotels. An original polished brass gallery features an array of surface patina, denoting age and heritage. Glass opaline creates a soft, even glow of illumination when lit, great for making a statement in hallways and lobbies, receptions and restaurants.

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

Over the years, we’ve restored thousands of lights that would otherwise have been lost forever - meticulously examining, refurbishing and updating one part at a time. But we don’t only piece together the light’s components. We also take the time to investigate its history, studying our archive of old manufacturer’s catalogues for clues to assemble the whole story.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2mtrs of brass suspension chain, traditional old gold braided cable and ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable please just ask)
