Small handmade 1960s/70s Danish ceramic lamp.
The striking design has very mid century, space age styling.
Features a very beautiful glossy dark blue glaze.
Has stunning rich purple, coppery brown and iridescent light blue highlights.
Model 1071, designed by Einar Johansen.
Handmade in Denmark on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has its manufacturer’s details, model number and designer’s mark etched on its base.
It will be rewired with vintage look braided cable. Please let us know which colour you would like. Dark blue, light blue and gold will all look good with this lamp.
It is 24cm high including the original lamp holder and 12cm wide at the base.
Excellent fully working vintage condition.
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. This doesn’t affect your statutory right of return.
It will be rewired with vintage style braided fabric cable with a new switch, hopefully retaining the original lamp holder.
We can fit a British/Irish, European*, Aus/NZ plug or American** plug.
It takes a E27 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included). In the photos is a vintage style LED Filament G95 'Radio Spiral' lightbulb (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. Full details of lampshades can be found under FAQs.
