History
The manufacturer ‘Zaklady Metalowe MESKO’ was established in 1922 and had its origins deeply rooted in the manufacture of munitions for the Polish armed forces. The company embarked on diversification into the lighting market during the cold war and became known for their versatile and robust assemblies. This model and its variants were created within the Soviet Union and as such they ooze cold war character.
About
These lights were salvaged from a decommissioned appliance factory in Gdansk where their large Fresnel lens allowed the illumination of expansive areas. Their age coupled with their harsh service life has created a magnificent patina to the enamelled enclosures which just cannot be replicated in modern-day fittings. To conserve their unique character, these lights have been thoroughly cleaned, painstakingly reassembled and protected with Renaissance Wax.
Further information
Each light arrives complete with its original restored lamp holder with E27 socket, two metres of black cable, two metres of steel chain and a ceiling mounting plate. Complete and ready to hang.

I was searching for something different, with a unique story and a history – and I found it. The quality is second-to-none, and the overall service was exceptional. I’ll be ordering another set as soon as the renovations are completed.

I am totally in love with my new light that has given the hallway some new life! The quality and attention to detail is exceptional. I can’t recommend Joseph Clark enough, from start to finish they have been great with answering my questions and making sure the light was exactly what I was after and delivered on time. I now want a light for every room!

I ordered two of the larger lights from Joseph Clark. After having them fitted in my loft they have created an industrial atmosphere which has surpassed my expectations. These lights came extremely well packaged so arrived in great original condition - I would definitely use them again.
