Let me cover today the counterweights found on Tynell (Taito/Idman) lamps.
Notice that you have 2 sorts of counterweight,
– the ones attached to the metallic wire, and has no pulley on it
– the ones attached to the electric wire, and has a pulley on it.
Each one of them requires a different ceiling cup.
Browsing the catalogs, you’ll find those “legitimate” counterweights:
Counterweight for electrical wire
Counterweight for metallic wire
– Water drop
– Rough bean / tapered
– Center Bullet
– Center ball
– Side ball
Few hints to avoid fakes:
– There is always a link between the weight and the wire (full brass link or brass wire link)
– A small brass ball on the metallic wire that limits the course.
If you look at the cylindrical electrical wire weight, it can be confused with a wall clock weight, so be careful that the edges are well rounded and that there is the link between the weight and the wire.
We also find this weight, but it is a rare lamp. the only documentation I have is that it appears on the group photo below .
Thank you for reading.
