Had this for about 10 years, and was never able to pin down the maker. Presumably made in Germany - it was bought there and is very German in style.

Enamelled metal shade, pressed steel neck pivoted to adjust at both ends, and a cast iron base. On the base is a distinctive 'S' logo.

The switched bulbholder is a contemporary replacement, so pay that no attention.

Hello everybody,
I have a similar one as well, and I'm looking for its origin.
Could you tell us (Modern retro) where you got your infos from, do you have a catalogue, a old ad?
I don't doubt your honesty, but I just want to understand and be sure.
cheers
F.

No one will give you a proof if you do not trust someone. In the literature, even this company is often confused with the SIS. I focused my interest to the lamp a few years ago. Lot of research, reading, many lamps in the collection. I also recognizes them as construction elements because I dealing with the renovation also. Schaco had three logos depending on the period, it is the oldest one.

Hi,
thanks for taking the time to answer.
It is not about trusting or not, but if you say something, it should actually come from somewhere, doesn't it?
Now you 're talking about literature, which ones?
I found one of the logo on the net, what would be the third one you're talking about?

-Image Removed-

I just find this "Archeology" very interesting, I love lamps, but I like my infos as specifics as possible.

cheers
F.

Also, would you say this lamp is also a SCHACO?

Why you are so offensively oriented? You can find it in "G. Schanzenbach & Co., GmbH, Frankfurt" catalogs. For example price list from 30's

I think there might be a communication problem here, rather than anyone being intentionally offensive.

SORRY!: it is NOT a Schaco. The "S" has nothing to do with Schaco. It is SCHNEIDER from Dr Ing Schneider an Co! Have a look to designretter.de if you need confirmation! I have also catalogues of both brands. Your scissor lamp is extremely beautiful!
Dr Ing Schneider an Co (aKa DISCO) was also producer of Horax and Fabrilux!

You are right, my fault. It was so long ago. I messed up and mixed two brands. Thank you !

Happy New Year to all!
designretter.de for german lamps and autrefois-la-lumiere.com for french lamps are two very reliable sources of information.
