Midgard DRGM DRP old scissor lamp with enameled shade
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 rebuilt again. All the small parts were cleaned, polished, oiled.
The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use.
The lamp is in good overall condition appart from some scratches and lack losses. It has a very nice patina. The enameled shade has losses of enamel.
The lamp is marked with MIDGARD, DRGM DRP (before the war), ‘Einstellung’.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a black cloth coated cord was used.
The light is operated by a rotary switch located on the original bakelite lamp socket, that is laterally light slacky.
The lamp can be easily attached to the wall with the wall-mount bracket and screws.
