Porcelain and glass lamp with straight base
The pure and timeless design of this lamp, that was strongly influenced by the Bauhaus-movement, makes it a true classic. These lamps were produced by various East German manufacturers since the 1920s, and were often used in the basements or military barracks. It consists of a porcelain base that includes a porcelain E27 socket, and a hand-blown glass dome. We really fancy the light effect it creates when the lamp is mounted to wall or ceiling.
This particular straight-based lamp was one of the lamps salvaged from the premises of a former refrigerator manufacturer in East Germany. It was found mounted to the ceiling of a fuel station on the complex.
