Other versions: This Diamond cutter pendant lamp is probably only made like this one. I have never seen another version.

This lamp was used in a diamond cutters workplace in Sint-Job-In-‘t-Goor (Brecht) in Belgium from the 1930s until the early 1960s. There were 3 diamond cutter companies at that time in the small village. In the 1960s these pendant lamps were replaced by TL-lights ( fluorescent tube).

Pictures below: how these lamps were used. Here suspended in the restored “Slijperij Lieckens“, part of the diamond museum in Nijlen, near Antwerp, where the diamond cutting in the Antwerp Campine started in 1908.
