WONDERLAMP, TYPE "G"
produced by Luber AG, Denmark
cellidor, nylon string, brass, stainless steel
42 ½ in. (107.9 cm) drop
15 in. (38.1 cm) diameter
Very good condition overall. The plastic balls with light surface dirt and areas of recess, consistent with age and gentle use. The nylon threads appear to be all intact. The lamp seems to retain all of its plastic balls. Very few examples of the all-white Wonderlamp were produced, providing collectors with a rare opportunity to acquire this rare 1970s design.
