    designed by the famous Bauhaus designer Wilhelm Wagenfeld for Peill & Putzler in the 1950s

    I bought this lamp in the middle of nowhere only because I liked it

    luckily somebody I connected with on Instagram immediately recognized it, a museum quality piece

    the design is apparently created with a process called "upshot glass" where small chips of glass are applied in a pattern while the base ids still hot

      The technique is sometimes called overshot glass or glue chip glass.
      Not something I associate with P&P but I only know a little about their vases, not their lights.
      You clearly have a great eye.

      racer4 is correct ;-)

      I used the wrong term

      another lucky thing was this is the XL version of this lamp design

      there was a smaller version and one recently sold for +/- EUR 2000

      funny that some Wagenfeld expert contacted me to tell me this was not actually his design

      it seems Atelier Peill & Putzler modified the Bonn Pendant size and then add embellishments and named it the Madeira pendant lamp

      I had a contact on Instagram assure me it was a Bonn pendant lamp and somebody sold the same lamp on Pamono with same details
