Fog & Mørup’s Golden Line was a mid-1970s premium offering of a small number of the company’s lines in 24-carat gold-plated editions. One of the selected lines was Jo Hammerborg’s multi-layered Milieu.
This is a well kept example of these rare editions and it is the largest version with three black anti glare rings at the bottom. The light has no dents or serious scratches but the golden surface have some mild stains that are very difficult to give justice in photos.
Standard E27 light bulb.
Johannes (Jo) Hammerborg grew up right outside of Randers, in a regular middle-class family. He trained as a silversmith, participated in Denmark’s resistance and struggle for freedom in 1940-45 as a saboteur, studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked as a silversmith at Georg Jensen. In 1957, he was hired as a chief designer at the lamp manufacturer Fog & Mørup, where he worked until 1980.
And now, decades later, his coveted lamps are in high demand, and they are being sold in antique shops.
I try to make the pictures reflect the true look, color and condition of the piece. If you have any questions or want additional photos please send a PM before buying.
