A large vintage Bauhaus lamp by Christian Dell for Kaiser Idell.
A wonderful example of this scarce German classic with the familiar domed shade with integrated Bakelite switch, patented swivel ball joints & a iron clamp base. The lamp has an exceptional age related patina to the original factory finish & the trademark dome on the top of the shade is embossed with the Kaiser Idell branding. Given its precise positioning & extra long reach, this particular model, the '6726', has always been piopular with architects & draughtsmen.
A handsome lamp, seldom found in this unusual dove grey colourway.
Wired in twisted black flex.
From 1922 to 1925, Christian Dell worked in the metal workshop in the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was the main man behind a pioneering & innovative form of design. In 1926, he began designing lamps which when when manufactured, used an exquisite choice of materials & precision enginneering throughout. The Kaiser Idell range is still produced today & remain as popular now as they were then.
Wear commensurate with age, good condition overall with some chipping to the top of the bakelite ball joint in the base, purely cosmetic (see last pics), the lamps holds position perfectly (the wing-nut on the base controls the tension of this ball joint, anothert feature unique to Kaiser Idell|)
The lamp accepts regular screw cap bulbs.
Measurement of 125cm is a flat out measurement with the lamp at full stretch.
All electrical items should be checked and / or installed by a qualified electrician prior to use.
