1930s German table light

Era: 1930s Origin: Germany

An early original 1930s German table light. Sensitively restored and retaining its original elements, the black enamelled shade's interesting surface patina is a testament to its age and history. Clamped to a table, the light can be fully rotated at the base and articulated at all of its joints, ideal for task lighting

Origin: Germany

German designs are famed for their clean lined and well engineered approach. The Bauhaus School played a major role in combining design with engineering during the late 1920s and early 1930s. A number of lights we salvage were influenced by Bauhaus School design. From the mid to late 20th century, Communist East Germany produced a wide variety of lights for both industrial, commercial and residential applications, often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.
