Question

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’.

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.

The River Turtle comes with a 42 watt E27 halogen bulb, a 1,5 meter matt black cable, and its passport describing the history and origin. A cage-less variant is available on request.

The fixture has been completely rewired to current standards, and is assembled and tested to EN 60598 directive of European Harmonized Legislation. US & Canada wiring available on request.
