'The River of light' Table lamp/Task light

I find the simple, angular lines of this Werra fascinating; it is like no other camera I have had before. To wind on the film and set the shutter you had to twist the lens surround.

I was given this camera by a good neighbour and I hope I have created a table lamp worthy of the gift.

Fully adjustable in height with a smart red cable.



After the Second World War the camera lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss was divided into a West German and an East German division. The East German division, Carl Zeiss Jena, lost a lot of personnel to the Russians, who deported them to create cameras for the Motherland. When they slowly started trickling back in the early 1950s, Zeiss Jena didn't have an immediate use for their expertise. They realised however that it would be a tremendous loss to the company and the country if their experience went to waste, so they gave them a project of their own: the Werra cameras. Manufactured in the Ernst Abbe Werk of Eisfeld, they were named after the river that runs near that town.
