Other versions: This 1970s double wall lamp was probably made in several colours.

This wall lamp had two labels inside the lampshades, but they are destroyed by the heat of the light bulbs and most parts of them are missing, as you can see below. Only some small remnants are left. But if I remember correctly, it is a wall lamp made by a German company in the late 1970s, early 1980s, to see on the wiring.

This wall lamp is reminiscent with the lamps designed by Gerald Thurston (1914-2005). He designed several double lamps. They were produced by the American Lightolier Inc. company.
