Bitossi Italian Yellow Green Ceramic Table Lamp Bedside 1960s 1970s
Vintage Bitossi Pottery Ceramic Table Lamp.
This is part of a new collection of stock. Because it hasn’t been rewired yet, you have the opportunity to choose the colour of vintage style braided cable you would like it to be rewired with from a choice of black, dark brown, dark blue, light blue, burnt orange and old gold.
Medium sized Italian lamp with an unusual attractive mustard yellow and green design.
Features a beautiful glossy mustard yellow glazed band with a thinner emerald green band. The base is smooth and matt.
Believed to be made in Italy in the 1960s/70s based on its shape (exactly the same shape as another lamp that we know to be Bitossi) and colouring but we cannot see any manufacturer’s details.
Approximately 26cm high including the lamp holder and 14cm wide at its widest part.
Very good fully working vintage condition with only very minor signs of age plus a few minor manufacturing imperfections including a small air bubble.
Will be rewired with vintage style black fabric cable and new switch.
We can fit a British/Irish, European, Aus/NZ or American* plug.
It takes a E27 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included).
* If used in the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using an energy saving/LED bulb. E26 bulbs should work but because they are 1mm smaller they should be fully turned to ensure they make contact with the fitting. This lamp will take a European type/size lampshade with a ring of 1.5 inches (3.6cm) or alternatively a lampshade that sits on the light bulb.
If you would like to buy a lampshade to accompany your lamp we recommend the wonderful handmade lampshades utilising vintage fabrics by Dawn Witty - you can find her designs here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/WittyDawnUK. If you contact her with a picture of the lamp you have bought she will make suggestions on a lampshade to suit it.
Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected. There may also be slight differences in colour depending on the device the product is viewed on.
