Although this pure and discrete lamp shade fixture was produced by the East German Leuchtenbau Leipzig, we have a strong feeling the design has been taking over from the West German manufacturer Bolich Ebolicht. This company has been producing these fixtures since the 1920s, and the timelessness of the simple conical design is illustrated by the fact that up to the present day they still do. With the design barely changed, this enamelled fixture is definitely a true classic.

Together with many other fixtures, this Penguin was found at the ceiling of a storage building on the premises of a former East German refrigerator manufacturer. All fixtures found in this space are considered special pieces originating from before the second world war or just soon after. Presumable after a reconstruction, these lamps were stockpiled at the attic, and left to be forgotten.

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. We present the lamp in it’s original finish, or re-finish the light in it’s original color. 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.
