{1947-1952 Vintage French CR Crystal Lampe Berger}

Another Vintage French Lampe Berger for showing you. This time it is the Crystal CR 1947-1952 Lampe Berger from the book: Lampes Berger A Century of History by Gérald Vilcocq on page 120 and also shown on page 202 in the listing.
Quite fittingly for a French Lampe Berger, to sit on  the French Fleur de Lys...
This is a perfect crystal Lampe Berger with original stopper, cap, stone and wick.
A very rare find and available at Spectrenoir.
Different view for showing the beautiful crystal.
For half a century of use... still looking great!
Its old patina I did not remove, that is up to the new owner.
Love its ajoured brass stopper...
Unique for having this one still complete like shown here.
A dream for any collector.
Engraved in the brass is Lampe Berger and on the other side, made in France.
This is shown on page 120 of the book: Lampes Berger A Century of History by Gérald Vilcocq.
This is on page 202 in the listing...
Taken with my iPhone as my scanner is in use for slides. Sorry about that!
Does any of you have such half a century old French Lampe Berger?

  10. My dearest friend Mariette,
    Thank you so much for your kinds words and your visit to my blog. As you can see, I haven't had enough time to visit you, my most sincere apologize. I've been very busy caning food and hopefully in a couple of weeks this will end.

    I came here to say that this vintage lap is so beautiful and exquisite. A month ago my oldest daughter and I went to an antique store, and we saw a lamp like this, but wasn't as nice as yours. Then I thought of you, and I told my daughter about your wonderful blog and everything you post and of course I told her about our friendship; she said "That is so cool, it is nice to have friends like her" (meaning you)

    She doesn't have a blog, but if she had it, she would be your follower too, who knows? maybe in the future

    Have a great weekend my friend, love to you, con cariño,

    Laura :0)

  11. Oh dear Mariette..let me start by saying that I love your silver pieces in your pretty header. I'm loving these vintage French lamps, how wonderful they are!! You have such unique and fabulous things in your shop...wish I was close by! Thank you for your wonderful visit, I always learn something. I did think about you when I placed the brown pretty plate. You also cracked me up about my FALLEN buffet with all my dishes..heheheheee...I don't think I'd be so COOL about that "title", had it really fallen, lol..
    PS: I have many Dutch things in Delft and Imari-Delft.

  12. So darling! Candle light and lanterns create such beautiful ambiance. The blue and white fabric is stunning .. with the silver.


  13. Questa lampada è veramente meravigliosa...purtroppo io non possiedo pezzi così belli!
    Ne approfitto per ringraziarti per gli auguri alla mia mamma..sei un tesoro Mariette!
    Un abbraccio affettuoso
