Vintage 1930s Bauhaus table lamp Kaiser Idell 6556 designed by Christian Dell

Completely cleaned, rewired & tested ready to go, this one was in quite some condition so was given a full strip down & resprayed in red.

Height 47cm, Width 21cm.

Dell was born in Offenbach am Main in Hesse. From 1907-11 he completed the silver forging studies at the academy. In 1912-13 he studied at the Saxon college of arts and crafts in Weimar. From 1922-25 he worked as a foreman of the metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar. In 1926 he changed to the Frankfurt art school (Städelschule). The Nazi Party did not allow him to stay there in 1933, but Walter Gropius offered him a job in the United States. However, Dell decided to remain in Germany.

After World War II, Dell manufactured silver goods and opened a jewellery shop in Wiesbaden in 1948, which he operated until 1955. He died in Wiesbaden in 1974.

Beginning in 1926 Dell sketched lights, at first for the New Frankfurt-project. As an early industrial designer and pioneer of plastic design, Dell used bakelite and aminoplastics as materials for his works for Molitor-Zweckleuchten in 1929-30. Well known are the lights for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co. in Neheim Hüsten beginning in 1933-34, which were produced in large quantities. The Kaiser Idell brand and production of lamps are now owned by the Danish design company Fritz Hansen

Rag & Bone Bros are 2 brothers who started out as collectors and scrappers of all sorts of salvaged metal. We began hoarding all the quality and cool items we salvaged, until we came to a point where we just had to sell them and embarked on the business of selling antiques, vintage and anything we thought was quality and cool.  We now travel all over the UK hunting everywhere we can for those amazing quality items we like to call treasure.

We also travel to Europe (France, Belgium, Holland and especially Germany...) and now, slowly into Eastern Europe, where we have a group of treasure hunters we work with who search tirelessly for those quality items.  We also specialise in using everything we find.  We will hunt for old bits of wood and rusty bits of metal, so when we refurbish anything, it will always be with salvaged, aged and original pieces.  Nothing is wasted.
