Question

Like the ‘Thorny Oyster’ and the ‘Pearl Oyster’, the Little Saddle Oyster is considered a real classic. Its pure and timeless design, that has been in production since the 1920s, was strongly influenced by the Bauhaus-movement. It consists of a porcelain base that is distinctive for its two hubs on each side, and a hand-blown glass dome. These kind of fixtures were produced by various East German manufacturers, and were often used in the basements or military barracks.

The Little Saddle Oyster was salvaged from the premises of a former state-owned manufacturing company. After the reunification in the early nineties many former state-owned companies were sold by the government. As its new owner only used a fragment of the extensive premises, the majority of the buildings have remained deserted and neglected for more than two decades. For the past 25 years, the main buildings served as a warehouse for a recycling company, leaving almost the entire interior untouched.

This fixture comes with a special 46 watt E27 halogen bulb, a 1,5 meter matt black cable, and a passport describing its history and origin.
