Midgard 110 DRGM DRP unique scissor lamp
The design of this vintage scissor lamp was developed by Curt Fischer, who worked on the idea of the ‘steerable light’ from approx. 1920 on. Even before the well known designs by Christian Dell or Marianne Brandt, Curt Fischer realized the idea of the so-called ‘steerable light’ with the all-round movable work lamp. The metal workshop at the Weimar Bauhaus was lit with Midgard lights, serving as an example to Bauhaus students, and was used later in Ilse and Walter Gropius’ master house livingroom at the Dessau Bauhaus.
After the thorough dismantling cleaning rust removal
of all elements, the lamp was polished brushed coated with oil and rebuilt again. All the small parts have been cleaned, polished, oiled.
The lamp has beautiful signs of wear consistent with its age and use.
It has been polished to give it a steel look and keep its patina.
The lamp is in good overall condition appart from some scratches. The nice shade has a signs of wear. The head in original condition has signs of wear, the bakelite part has a damage, what does not disturb the function. The nice shade has slightly dents.
The lamp is engraved with the Midgard logo at the head, and MIDGARD DRGM DRP Ausl Pat (before the war) and ‘Einstellung’ on the scissor.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a ivory cloth coated cord was used.
The light is operated by a rotary switch located on the brass lamp socket.
The lamp can be easily attached to the wall with the wall-mount bracket and screws.
