Exhibit description

This gas pendant lamp employs a series of solutions to make its use more convenient. The lamp’s light source is the Welsbach mantle, which gives off a pleasant white glow as a result of being heated by a gas flame. The radiant element is protected by a glass lampshade.

The flame’s intensity is valve controlled, and the height of the pendant lamp can be adjusted using the telescopic mechanism. This allows the lamp to brightly illuminate the entire room or create a spotlight, cosy effect. In this way, this beautiful lamp not only made the interiors look more refined but also met the specific needs of the household members.
