Engstrom Pottery Danish Brown Ceramic Table Lamp Bedside Light Retro
Vintage Danish Pottery Ceramic Table Lamp. Medium sized studio pottery table lamp made in Denmark in the 1960s/70s.
Iridescent shiny glazed bands of warm dark chocolate brown and lighter caramel gold. Unusual and striking design.
Handmade by Engstrom Pottery in Denmark in the 1960s/70s. Has ‘Engstrom Handmade Denmark’ etched to its base.
Excellent vintage condition with only very minor signs of age.
27cm high, including the lampholder, and 14cm wide at the base.
Fully working condition. It has been fully refurbished with a vintage style antique brass lampholder and black vintage look braided cable. We can fit a British/Irish, European, Aus/NZ or American* plug. It takes an E27 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included).
* In the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using LED/low voltage lightbulbs. E26 bulbs should fit but because they are 1mm smaller you will need to turn the bulb fully to ensure it makes contact with the fitting.
A note on lampshades. We sell our lamps without lampshades but they are all suitable for them. Shading the glare from lighting is actually intrinsic to the Danish design and living (hygge) ethos. Poul Henningsen's classic PH pendant lamp is the perfect example of the Danish design approach to form and function - the multiple, angled layers of the pendant were specifically engineered to completely eliminate glare. 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
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 variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through. Handmade items may have slight imperfections, such as air bubbles in glass, which add to their uniqueness and charm.
