Due to its characteristic looks, this lamp was known as a ‘Turtle lamp’. A wide range of these lamps were produced by the East German manufacturer Elektroinstallation Oberweimar (EOW), and used in a large variety of industries. Its typically industrial design comprises an cast-aluminium body with a spring-mounted ceramic E27 socket, fitted with a splash-proof glass cover. The River Turtle is distinguished by a screw-on protective case, and also comes in smaller variants known as the ‘Little River Turtle’ and the ‘Baby River Turtle’.

ORIGIN
The lamp was salvaged from a former state-owned cable manufacturer in East Germany. Together with several others it was mounted to the wall in the factory’s basement.
