Old black factory lamps “CARBO”
Old black factory lamps from the 1930s. We bought a total of 200 lamps – found in the attic of an old factory – some of them (140 pieces) are these lamps. On the last picture in the gallery you can see the old factory lamps as they were found (in the back three rows the bigger version with larger shades).
These old lamps are made in Germany. What is special about these industrial lamps is that they are not enameled, but lacquered. Some manufacturers also offered the lamps painted, as this version enabled a lower price. Often with the same model, as the metal shade was the same as the enameled version.
These beautiful factory lamps have the strong marks of the past decades such as chipping, rust spots, scratches, discoloration and Co. This means that every single lamp is unique. The weathered inside creates unique light effects and the yellowed / rusted surface creates a particularly warm light.
They have been restored: cleaned, preserved and re-electrified, with new E27 ceramic sockets.
Material: sheet steel painted black (white inside).
Smaller version (as shown): height of the lamps ca. 20 cm (without hanging loop), diameter ca. 36 cm.
Larger version: height of the lamps ca. 23.5 cm (without hanging loop), diameter ca. 40.5 cm.
The old industrial lamps are supplied with a 2 meter textile cable in the color of your choice (other lengths are of course possible) and a massive hanging eye for safe hanging. The lamps can also be supplied with chain or tubular steel suspension for an additional charge. We can also offer canopies.
