This decorative model was one of the more elaborate lights from HALA in Hannover. The faceplate can be freely adjusted in any direction via a ball joint in the base. On the reflector there is a joint that can be locked with a wing screw, which is marked HALA DRGM (German Reichs Utility Model), the pre-war designation for protected design. The manufacturer has attached a device for wall mounting under the foot. The lamp has been rewired and can now shine again for many years with a fine patina of age.
