    Default Weird military-looking light fixture

    This was in a militaria collection and looks at least vaguely military, obviously a five-socket light fixture. I have no idea of the nationality or anything else, though the preponderance of the collection is Allied, so I hope this is the right place. Hope someone might know!

    I'm so ignorant of both Mercedes G4s and light fittings that I can't even know if you're joking, but I can at least tell you I honestly thought it was some sort of light fixture. But if that's a comically dumb guess on my part, then I'll take whatever ribbing I've earned (especially if I find out what it actually is).

    A nice art deco ceiling light fixture...it must have looked magnificent when it was new and complete. I'm not seeing a military connection, though-unless maybe it was pulled out of a building by a GI and brought home...?

    It looks similar to the type of chandelier fitted in the smoking salon of the Avro Lancaster come to think of it.

    Beg to differ; I think it's Hermann Göring's fridge light, actually.

    Was that for being Reich Beer Drinking Master? Or is it Reich Biggest Loser from when we put him on a diet in prison, and he started to get healthy?
