1950’s Very Large Industrial Green French Enamel Ceiling Pendant Lamps/Light Shades – Sammode
1950’s very large industrial green French enamel ceiling pendant lamps/light shades – Sammode. Founded in 1927 by Louis Lemaire in Châtillon-sur-Saône, Sammode was the preminent industrial lamp manufacturer of France. These lamps were a mainstay of French factories and we came across ten in a factory in Normandy. Featuring large scale enamelled steel shades and cast metal tops. The key feature of these lamps is their stunning original condition and size, we have ten available and they are being sold singularly. These lamps are strong visual statements perfect for a hall, contemporary kitchen or living space. Each lamp has been cleaned and restored and all electrical components have been removed and replaced with modern European CE standard components to BS EN 60598. Each lamp is individually tested and labelled to BS EN 60598. INCLUDED: Each lamp comes completely wired and ready to install including; 2 metres of zinc coated chain for hanging the lamps, 2 metres of black fabric covered electrical cable and a ceiling hook as shown. The lamp is fitted with a standard E27 threaded lamp holder for which a wide range of modern and vintage style filament bulbs are widely available. We do not currently sell bulbs and recommend LED bulbs 6W maximum. We select the best colour/style of cable for each lamp but additional colours are available for different projects. Our alternative cable colours (in stock) are as shown in the images with numbered cables. If you wish to select a different cable colour please state the colour number in the comments at checkout. Additional special order colours are available and we can also supply more than 2 metres of hanging cable/wire/chain etc as required, please contact us separately to discuss. We are specialists in refurbishment of vintage lighting, please contact us with any questions regarding purchase or installation.
