Iconic mid century ceiling lamp
This is a lamp for the real enthusiast of Dutch midcentury lighting design. It does not look like new, but it is also about the appearance of this lamp, which is a true work of art.
We completely disassembled it and cleaned it thoroughly.
This is because the light-caps and bottom of the large bowl are not bad. The top of the large aluminum bowl and the rod with the ceiling rose do have a lot of damage, mainly white paint splashes. It has been somewhat concealed with a black marker, but because the lamp normally hangs high, it is not visible.
Too bad a painter didn't cover the lamp when he painted the ceiling. It would be possible to have the rod and large hood repainted. But that's personal for everyone, I'm not such a fan of it myself.
Because the electrical wiring was very bad, it has been renewed. The fittings were also broken, and have therefore been replaced by 1970s fittings.
Due to its color and traces of use, it is a beautiful industrial object that will never go out of style.
