Mystery Lamp

Posted by webbmeister (My Page) on

I was on holiday in Budapest and I saw this lamp in one of their "Ruin Clubs". I have been on the lookout for one since, but I have never seen one in the UK. Can someone give me a pointer towards the "type" of lamp it is, plus an idea of country of origin. Maybe an idea of age too?
Many thanks

It's not easy to see much detail about the lamp from your picture.
Is the shade paper? Skin? Glass? Does it hang from a bracket? The ceiling or a stand on the floor?
Do a google image search for things like hanging lamp or glass shade lamp or panel shaded lamp and see if you can find a picture.

Hi Linda

I believe the shade was fabric of some kind and hangs from a wire from the lamp's bracket. All floor standing.
Sorry about pic quality - it was pretty dark. Added another one which is slightly better.


RE: Mystery Lamp

I wonder if this isn't a reworking of an old bridge lamp -- a little creative wiring or a good yank on the socket, and voila! You could try adapting an old lamp to replicate this.

You might also try googling "wrought iron bridge lamp pendant" or something similar.

Not quite the same, but I just ran across this on eBay.
