This rare, yet sophisticated lamp dates from the 1950s. Although this item is related to the ‘True Oyster’, its pure and clean design is mostly distinguished by a unique bakelite shade. Besides the polished bakelite shade, it consists of a porcelain base with a hand-blown glass dome. It is definitely one of our personal favorites.

ORIGIN
The lamp was salvaged from one of the prominent military complexes used during the cold war. Around the 1960s, when this top-secret complex was fully operational, this lamp illuminated one of the ammunition storage sites.

RESTORATION
All our lights are restored by hand with the greatest care. As unique piece of heritage, we seek to preserve the light’s authentic appearance. The lamp has been completely rewired to current standards, and fully assembled and tested to European Legislation, We hope that it may be preserved for many centuries to come.

Other lengths for cable and rod are possible on request, please specify in comments at check out.
