Curl arm columns

Curl arm columns

Click to view full size image

Row of curl arm poles. Those were not very common but were installed in small amounts through the 80s, and used ultimately with the polyethylene posttop bubbles, as seen here. Usually equipped wiht 125w mercury lamps, they cast very distinct aura at night, especially in a silent place with trees and water and with aged lamps and discolored spheres

Versions with 1-4 arms existed, in all of them the arms are intentionally offset in height. In the 1-arm version, the top of the single arm is curled in the other direction

Those are pretty cool. I wonder if the columns were custom made.

I think the were not custom made as i seen them in a few different places (most dating to the 80s). They were just quite rare. But it is possible that they were custom made for place A, then owners of place B seen them in place A and then ordered some from the manufacturer too, and so on

Ben-Hur and other manufacturers in Israel, produces various arms for globes and lanterns.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
