Riba-Lux Large Fishermans Petroleum Lamp, 1950-1954
Questions about this piece?
These types of lamps were mainly imported until the Second World War and the most famous manufacturer on the Dalmatian coast was a german company Petromax whose name, in the “domesticated” variant – petromas – has remained an eponym for all types of these lanterns to this day. The problems occurred after the war. Many german factories, including Petromax, were destroyed in Allied bombings and the supply of spare parts became a pressing problem for the Dalmatian fishermen. This was the reason why the company Riba-lux was formed in Zagreb in the postwar period. In the beginning, the company specialized in repairs and maintenance, and from 1950 it started manufacturing their lamps. Condition consistent with age and use.
