Description
Lamp (2)
Germany - 1950-1974 - Bakelite, Iron (cast/wrought)

Two very beautiful and special lamps. They are numbered on the underside of the cast-iron base. These are numbers 4 and 9. These lamps appear to be originally meant for the textile industry, although I'm not certain of this. The last photo shows a similar lamp (not part of this lot) fixed to a sewing machine.

These two lamps with bakelite or plastic shades and switches can be placed in both standing and hanging position. Thanks to the arm the lamp shade can be aimed in all directions, so very functional. A beautiful cast-iron base and beautiful shades. The base applied with a worn sticker stating the lamp's German history.

Base measurements: 12.5 cm x 10 cm. The shades have a diameter of 6.5 cm.

Top items, especially as a pair. Unique and rarely seen.
