Vrieland Design

Vrieland Design was a wholesaler, not a producer of lamps. They sold many lamps that were also sold or produced by other companies such as Massive from Belgium, Knud Christensen Elektric A/S, from Denmark, Yamada Shomei from Japan and many others.

The company was active in the 1970s and 1980s, to see on the lamps they sold and the labels. Labels from the 1990s have the CE logo on their labels when it became mandatory in the European Union. Not to be confused with the Chinese label CE, what stands for China Export and is almost identical. 

This lamp was produced in Germany by an unknown company. The label says Je Fassung 25 Watt, German for: Each socket 25 Watt. In Dutch it should be: Elke lamp 25 watt.

Below two labels of Vrieland Design. The label on the left is the label of this tin can table lamp.
