One of a pair of early MIDGARD LAMPS acquired at a local agricultural auction in a badly rusted state (no idea how they found their way to rural Somerset). Following rust removal they have been left in a sealed brushed steel finish, highlighting their impeccable engineering.

This is a model 109 or 110 designed in the 1920's by Curt Fischer, the D.R.G.M D.R.P engraving on the scissor movement, and the long steel stem attaching the lampholder (later bakelite) are an indication of pre-war production. The black conical shade is not the original , but is a reasonable substitute of a similar vintage.

To read about the fascinating 100 year history of MIDGARD, CURT FISCHER and his connection with the BAUHAUS visit their website here.

The smaller hinged 114 model wall lamp found at the same time can be seen here .
