It was in 1898 that the amazing Lampe Berger story started.
In response to a major preoccupation at that time - a sepsis in
hospitals - Maurice Berger, a pharmaceutical dispenser, invented a
system of diffusion by catalysis, for which he filed a patent. This
revolutionary technology, which purifies the air in enclosed rooms, was
soon to be applied for private use, giving birth to the Lampe Berger
The little lamp which destroys bad smells saw its apogee during
the1930s: fragrance provided the dimension of pleasure; the Lampe Berger
became a collector’s item, each lamp being associated with a designer
and major manufacturer such as Cristal de Baccarat, Cristalleries de
Saint Louis, Emile Gallé, René Lalique, and then the top porcelain
producers of the 1950s… Coco Chanel, Jean Cocteau, Colette or Picasso
each had their own Lampe Berger.
The Trianon lamp with a blue porcelain finish alludes to the
18th-century "boudoir" theme with its ornamental sweet jar shape and its
white floral decorations. A silver strip enhances the lamp's edge. The
round, shiny silver metal mounting engraved with "LAMPE BERGER PARIS"
gives it a more contemporary aura. Lamp sold in a box, with 1 catalytic
burner, 1 stopper and 1 funnel.
