This large classical shade belongs to the family of the ‘Blackbird’ and the ‘Black Swan’. These lights were commonly used during the DDR era, and was originally designed by the Bauhaus movement in the late 1920s. They were produced in large numbers by the manufacturer Leuchtenbau Leipzig in order to be used in light industrial areas like collective farms and railway stations. It features a large enameled shade with a bakelite connection box.

ORIGIN
The large enamel shade was salvaged from the terrain of a former refrigerator manufacturer in East Germany. The lamps hung at the entrance of one of the main production areas of the factory.
