This wonderful vintage lamp by LBL has not been left untouched by time. Signs of use are to be seen, but this fact does not detract from its beauty. Chips and rust add to its charm and any space will be enhanced by its history and elegance, something cheap Chinese imitations cannot duplicate. These types of lamps were initially conceived for assembly halls, workshops, storage facilities, and construction sites and were used from the early to late 20th century. In the description from original sources, the uniformity of the illuminated space was praised as one of its quality features. The light socket is recessed to prevent glare even at elevated heights.
Today this lamp is sought after for living and working spaces as well as for restaurants and bars. During its manufacture, two practical points were emphasized: form and function which set the criteria for the choice of materials, form and color scheme. For this reason, this lamp is of functional beauty, longevity, and timeless aesthetic. This model has a hemispherical shade which is lightly divided. The light socket is made of ceramic and can hold bulbs of up to 500 Watts. On top of the dome is a junction box with a suspension eye made of Bakelite for hanging. This is an authentic combination which was found in many workshops. This is the smallest of the three models made with a diameter of 38 cm.
This light has been cleaned, then sealed to prevent further deterioration of the materials, rewired, and tested. It can be immediately installed.
