Old black industrial lamps 1930ies “CALLIPTERIS”
Old black industrial lamps from the 1930s. We bought a total of 200 lamps (found in the attic of an old factory), some of which (60 pieces) are these lamps. The last picture in the gallery shows the old factory lamps as they were found. The lights have the classic two-part shape that was used to ventilate (cool) the lamps.
The old enamel lamps are made in Germany. What is special about these industrial lamps is that the head has a thread at the top. This made it possible to use a longer threaded tube so that the height of the socket (the bulb) can be continuously adjusted. So you can adjust & optimize the beam angle and thus the light cone. On request, we can also deliver the lamps in this version.
These beautiful factory lamps have the usual (sometimes strong) traces of the past decades such as chipping, rust spots, scratches, discoloration, etc. They have been restored: cleaned, preserved and re-electrified, with new E27 ceramic sockets.
Material: black (white inside) enameled sheet steel.
The dimensions: height of the lamps ca. 26 cm (without hanging loop), diameter ca. 41 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.
