Holmegaard Danish Small Black Glass Astro Table Lamp Atomic Era
Holmegaard Small Black Glass Table Lamp
This vintage black glass ‘Astro’ lamp has an atomic era styling. It has been refurbished with a vintage style black braided cable and zinc lamp holder.
Designed by Sidse Werner in 1987 for Holmegaard in collaboration with Royal Copenhagen. Retains its original sticker.
Handmade by Holmegaard in Denmark in the 1980s.
18cm high including the zinc lamp holder. 13cm wide.
Very good fully working vintage condition. It has a scratch in the glass on the top.
Sidse Werner was a Danish architect and industrial designer, probably best known for her 1971 Coat Tree design for Fritz Hansen. She died in 1989.
Full working condition. Rewired with a vintage style braided fabric cable. We can fit a 3 pin European* plug, British/Irish, Australia/NZ, or American** plug.
Takes a B22 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included) but we will provide a E26/E27 adapter if you choose the European or USA region options. In the photos is a vintage-look LED Filament G95 ‘radio spiral’ bulb (not included).
Because it has a metal lamp holder this lamp needs to be fitted with a 3 pin earthed plug. If you live in a country that does not have 3 pin sockets please let us know and we will change the lamp holder to a standard plastic one so that they can be used with a 2 pin socket. Please let me know if you are unsure about this.
* European option: we will send an adapter so you can use E27 light bulbs, although in Europe you will be able to buy B22 light bulbs online from the UK.
** USA option: we will send an adapter so you can use E26 light bulbs. In the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using an energy saving/LED bulb. This lamp will take a European/UK type & size lampshade with a UNO style ring of 1.5 inches (3.6cm) or 1 inch (2.6cm) 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
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. But unless otherwise stated there will be no chips or similar damage. There may also be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
