Period: 1970s – Mid-Century Modern. Other versions: Made in many forms and sizes, also made as flush mount, wall lamp, table lamp. These lamps are most of the time sold as lamps designed by Richard Essig for the German company DORIA. But that is not true. Richard Essig is not a designer and these lamps are not even made in the DORIA-style. You never find these lamps with a DORIA label. Often there is a Richard Essig label present, but Essig is not a designer but a company. Other labels that were found on these lamps are from Leclaire & Schäfer from Germany, Massive from Belgium and Peill + Putzler. So in all probability the glass was produced by Peill + Putzler. It is certain that Massive used it’s own parts and only bought the glass, because the canopy and metal parts are typical for the Belgian company. Maybe they also produced these lamps for others. Designer ************ - Manufacturer *************** Massive was in origin a bronze foundry and they produced mainly candlesticks, crucifixes and chandeliers in Wilrijk near Antwerp, Belgium. The company was founded in 1926 by Pieter-Jozef De Jaeck. His son Eddy De Jaeck was responsible for the huge expansion of the company in the 1970s. But it were his sons, Piet and Jan De Jaeck who made Massive a true multinational. Thus, they moved production to Eastern Europe and China. In the 1980s Massive became the leading brand in Europe. In 2002, the brothers left the company to the investment fund CVC Capital Partners, for allegedly more than 250 million euros. Since 2008 the company is owned by Philips and the name of the shops is changed into Light Gallery. When the takeover by Philips was announced in November 2006 Massive commercialized more than 10.000 lighting products under brand names such as Massive, TRIO and Lirio. The group had about 5.000 employees worldwide and was active in 70 countries. Attention to detail and to the customer ******************************************* Because we sell objects worldwide, our service principle is to fit the correct plug to your lamp. Our lamps are standard equipped with a European (EU) plug. You can also choose to have an American (US) or an English (UK) plug fitted (free of charge). You can choose this option at the top of the product page in the dropdown menu “plug type”. If you do not make a choice, the lamp comes with an EU plug. Packaging with care and love ******************************** Our usually irreplaceable items are often very fragile and must therefore be packaged and shipped with the special care they deserve! We only use shipping materials that are suitable for international shipping. Your object will be rolled in soft foam or bubble wrap and then packed in a well-fitting inner box. The whole is then placed in an extra sturdy cardboard outer box. The space around the inner box is filled with air cushions and/or Styrofoam to further secure your package against outside violence. In this way we try to do everything we can to prevent damage from occurring during transport so that you can enjoy your purchase as it was intended. Fast and Free Worldwide Shipping, all orders ship within 1-3 business days. Insurance *********** Your shipment is always insured as standard up to 500 euros. For more expensive lamps, I increase the insurance to the amount of the lamp. So if the package is lost or damaged during shipping, there is nothing to worry about. You will always receive a new product or you will be fully reimbursed for your purchase amount. Please read terms and conditions for the insurance! Upon receipt, the damage must be reported within 7 days, otherwise we can no longer make a claim with the insurance (condition of PostNL). The insurance only pays out in the event of damage if it can be demonstrated that the item was properly packaged. In the event of damage, I will ask you for some photos of the packaging and of the product itself to demonstrate to the insurance company that the product was properly packaged. So please always keep the packaging until the photos have been sent. For parcels sent outside the EU, the insurance company also asks for a damage report. You should request this report from your post office. Damage Report: The consignee must bring the damaged contents, box and all packaging materials to the post office on site to have this report prepared. Unfortunately, your request cannot be processed without this report. Follow us! *********** Are you curious about all our other beautiful lamps?
