These type of lamps are often attributed to Helena Tynell. But there is no proof for it. These lamps are “in the style” of the bubble lamps she designed for Glashütte Limburg, but they are “classic” in stead of “modern”.
Glashütte Limburg was founded in 1946. Today Glashütte Limburg is a member of the Bega group. The company still exists and they make beautiful (industrial) lighting. The name Glashütte Limburg is no longer in use since 2017. Bega was founded in 1945 by goldsmith and steel engraver Heinrich Gartenbrink.
