Thursday, March 28, 2013: Nectarine orange clock. Die Hausuhr (German for “the house clock”) was manufactured in Germany and sold through the chain of Tchibo coffee shops.  The face can be turned through 360 degrees on the U-shaped bracket and can either be used free-standing on a desk or table or mounted on a wall. The white clock face with a large modern typeface is clear and easy to read and is protected by a clear acrylic cover.  The hour and minute hands are in black, with an orange second hand that matches the color of the casing.  Signed “die Hausuhr” on the clock dial. The clock mechanism and battery housing is on the rear, with a built in wall hanger. Battery operated, it takes a standard C type battery.  The clock measures 6” in diameter and is 6-3/4” tall by 2” deep.

Friday, March 29, 2013: Herda table lamp.  Chromed metal base and double layered plastic shade that lights up beautifully when lit. The lamp has the same on and off mechanism as the Panthella by Verner Panton, which originally uses a bulb that gives two different degrees of light. Pulling the chained cable in the middle of the shade lets the bulb shine normal, pulling it twice lets the light shine brighter. A third pull lets the light go down again and a fourth pull turns the light off. These bulbs are on sale again as led bulbs but a normal bulb works as well only not with the different degrees. Two pulls is on and two more is off with a normal bulb. The shade measures 35cm (13.8”) in diameter and the lamp measures 57cm (22.4”) in height.
