Musical Occasional Lamp (Schemerlampje met Muziekdoosje)
From the Collection of Dutch Australian Heritage Centre Victoria 60 Rosstown Road Carnegie Victoria
- A small plywood and plastic windmill with a music box connected to the vanes. The outside is decorated with windmill scenes.
- These lamps were essential in Dutch household to help to create the famous "gezelligheid" or cosy atmosphere.
- Although this seems to have been a windmill only to begin with, with the electric light added later, it speaks of the significance of this type of lamp in the homes of the Dutch.
