Altbeau is an online shopping platform that is specialised on east european and german lighting of the 20th century, mostly the DDR era (ancient east german communist regim from the 1950's till 1989). Basically, you will find on Altbeau a lot of original lamps that come from Berlin and its region. They are entirely restored, technically checked but not changed in their substance as we aim to provide genuine and authentic artifacts that are reflecting a certain part of history.Our lamps come from industrial factories, ancient buildings, and rural areas and we try as much as possible to identify their origin, production period and context. You will find these informations below each lamp picture, with the description of its size and material. These lamps are history objects. The communist political era from where they come exists no more, so they can have sign of wear and look a bit old and used but we garanty that they are technically OK and in good condition.
