Other versions: This chrome tubes wall lamp was in all probability produced in several versions.
For this setup silver tipped light bulbs were used. In all probability long tube light bulbs were the original design, as you can see with this Sciolari flush mount. These wall lamps are often attributed to Sciolari or the Belgian S.A. Boulanger. But it was produced by another Belgian company: Te De Light.
Te De Light
Nothing to be found about the Te De Light or TD Light company. Occasionally a lamp appears with a label. Often the paper label is gone. Their lamps were produced in the 50s, 60s and early 70s. Several of them are in the style of some S.A. Boulanger tube lamps as you can see with this wall lamp.
