Pair of Kaiser Idell 6614 black scissor lamps
The Kaiser & Co. Leuchten KG company was founded in 1895 by Hermann Kaiser, a silversmith and industrial designer. Christian Dell, who headed the metalwork department at the Weimar Bauhaus for several years, designed a large range of lights (more than 500 models) with the idea to create interchangeable and strandardized parts of lamps. The Idell lamps (combination of ‘Dell’ and ‘Idea’) are viewed to this day as a design classic — a timeless ideal with a simple and clean avant-garde design, noble materials and an essential functionality.
After the thorough dismantling cleaning rust removal of all elements, the lamp was polished brushed newly painted and built again.
The lamps are engraved with Original Kaiser Idell on the shade.
The mechanical system of the lamps functions, but one doesn’t hold the closed position in the descending direction.
The lamps have signs of wear consistent with its age and use. The scissors and particularly shade have a very nice patina and light dents.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a black cloth coated cord was used.
The lights are operated by a rotary switch located on the lamp socket. The swithes are working but one doesn’nt rest.
The lamps can be easily attached to the wall with the non original wall-mount bracket and screws.
