Other versions: This 1970s enamelled metal pendant lamp was in all probability produced in several colours and sizes.

Rare seen lamps with an industrial look and feel. White enamelled on the inside, as they did a long time ago. However, the colour brown was popular at the end of the 70s, early 80s. And also the wiring tells that they are from the same period.

These half round lampshades are made in iron, also not obvious. Usually lampshades, if they are made of metal, are made of aluminium.

Although they have no marks whatsoever, presumably they were produced in Germany. Many lamps from that period in this brown colour were produced over there.

Vitreous enamel, also called porcelain enamel, is a material made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing. It was often used for lamps produced before the Second Word War.
