History
After its establishment in 1922, ‘Zaklady Metalowe MESKO’ specialised in the manufacture of munitions for the Polish armed forces. Following years of operation, their engineering prowess created an opportunity for them to branch out into industrial lighting which required the same exacting safety, reliability and performance standards. By the Cold War era when these lights were created, the company had become known as a major industrial lighting manufacturer within the Eastern Bloc.
About
These lights were salvaged from a decommissioned appliance factory in Gdansk where their large Fresnel lens allowed the illumination of expansive areas. They have undergone a full restoration by local experts and have been tastefully finished in their original stove enamel paint to ensure their original aesthetic is maintained. Each light is characterised by a rectangular steel junction box sitting atop an impressive re-enamelled steel enclosure, interesting latticework cage and original stamped identification plate with makers mark and serial number.
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.
