A lovely black metal desk lamp designed by Christian Dell for Dell, Germany around 1950.
This piece has a nice Bauhaus style with straight shapes and rounded details. Made of high quality black lacuqered metal with brass details. This lamp, model “Guthe”, emits a bright downwards light when lit that can be re-directioned in several positions. A lovely find of midcentury design!
It remains in good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
