A rare seen wall or table lamp, maker unknown. A logo is present. But nobody knows it, unfortunately. It is a German lamp. The logo of the company is a C with a  lamp inside. The D next to the logo is for Germany (Deutschland). Do you have an idea? Please let us know through the contact form and help improve the websites exactitude. Your help is much appreciated.

Also the with plastic part has the same logo’s moulded in it. Together with the text: PAT. ANM. – patent anmeldung – registered patent.

The socket and plug were also made by a German company; logo HM.

Is it a wall lamp, or only a table lamp? It seems that there are no parts missing, but there is no recess provided. Maybe it was intended as a picture light. It is also in a very good, never used condition.
