Description Impressive sculptural counter balance ceiling lamp model 5018 designed by J.J.M. Hoogervorst for ‘Anvia’ Almelo, Holland 1957.
This beautiful lamp is a mid-1950s 1st edition, not compared to the later ones with plastic details. This first edition is fully made of metal. This amazing lamp has an off white lacquered arm and red lacquered large shade, counterweight and ceiling cap. The lamp swivels 360 degrees and balances (tilts) in any wanted position by changing the weight at the back as you can screw this back and forth at the end of the arm which creates the balance of this lamp. An ingenious system by one of the best lighting manufacturers from Holland of their era. Comparable to Arredoluce and Stilnovo, quality wise.
The lamp is in very nice original condition with some paint losses as you can see on the pictures. The lamps wiring is checked and usable for the US too.
