- From France again comes this beauty of a Lampe Berger with an artful Anémones bottle by Charles Ahrenfeldt from 1963-1971.
- On page 134 of the book Lampes Berger: A Century of History by Gérald Vilcocq you can read more about the history of Charles Ahrenfeldt.
- This is a stunning bottle and in perfect condition as well; complete with ajoured brass crown, snuff cap and burner wick.
- That is remarkable for such a lamp, being half a century old! Available at my on line boutique Mariette's Back to Basics ←click it! Worldwide Shipping!
- Also see on my website the information about Lampe Berger with History video and Air Diagnosis quiz; click here and select:→ Air Diagnostic and go to the blue hyperlinks with title.
- Beautiful relief work and to the lower left you also see a signature, near the stems with thorns.
- That is very rare!
- Wonder why this is called Anémones on page 134 of the book?
- To me they are ROSES, complete with thorns and all... Am I wrong?
- Monsieur Gérald Vilcocq might be a great writer and knowledgeable about Lampe Berger but he is no botanist in my eyes; not convincing enough at least!
- A detail of the Anémones, uhm ROSES... See signature at left?
- Part of the back side, beautiful detail too.
- Triple initials CA with Limoges France and Porcelaine Charles Ahrenfeldt Limoges France.
- Also numbered 33.
- Made in France on this side of the brass neck...
- All complete in brass as the vintage models used to be made.
- The new ones nowadays have a very light aluminum crown and are no longer made from heavier brass, bronze or tin.
- Even the earliest catalytic is in tact.
- Again a signature visible here.
In about two weeks I will list two more of these Charles Ahrenfeldt Lampe Berger but they do NOT have this special signature and are not numbered either...
- Made in France
- Lampe Berger
This is page 134 from the book I have for reference.
- This is the book I got from publisher NOÈME
- I could not scan that part as this hard cover is too large, but it is written under the Lampe Berger at the bottom.
