Philips "First Product" Power Supply Table Lamp

About the Item

Philips table lamp Lamp made from the first adapter ever. Philips manufactured the first (home) radio for private individuals in 1925. This (type 2501) radio worked on batteries, but because the Netherlands was busy connecting the homes to the electricity grid at that time, the question arose whether the radio could also be connected to the socket. That is why, especially from 1927, these transformer/rectifiers were supplied as an option. After this radio combination, Philips quickly switched to manufacturing (home) radios with built-in power supply. A short and special period, so that there are few of these more than 90 years old adapters left. Because the built-in electricity can no longer mean a sensible and safe function in the current time, it has been completely removed. Placed back are a powerful (800 lumen Philips) LED lamp in “Edison” shape glass bulb. The left rotary knob switches between off, two neon mood lights on and (third position) the LED lamp on (neons off). Right rotary knob, very nicely regulates the light intensity of the LED lamp. In certain low dimmed positions, the lamp can sometimes flicker, this is not a problem and perhaps extra atmospheric? A total of five copies were made (one sold), four with a glued fixed (Philips) LED lamp and one with built-up E27 fitting (this has interchangeable (incandescent) lamp options). Bakelite top plate. Steel plate housing with beautiful patina or newly sprayed black hammer blow (because of the condition some copies were in). One version has a France guideline printed on the housing, the other one's: Dutch. New cotton wrapped and earthed connection cable (300 cm.) with old bakelite Europe connector.
