Soholm Blue Purple Danish Table Lamp Vintage 1960s Manila Retro Scandinavian Light
Soholm Pottery Danish Manilla Ceramic Table Lamp
Stunning medium-sized lamp, handmade in Denmark in the 1960s/70s
Has a glossy glaze in light greenish blue and warm amber/caramel with lemon yellow highlights.
Also features bands of grass-effect textured relief design on the neck and at the widest part.
The overall effect of the mottled sea green/blue and caramel glaze is of a warm purplish colour.
The shimmering glazed design varies around the lamp and looks different from different angles and in different lights.
Model number 1009. Part of Soholm’s Manilla series, designed by Svend Aage Jensen.
Handmade in Denmark by Soholm Stentoj (Pottery) on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has manufacturer's details, model number and designer’s initials etched on its base.
30cm high including the original lamp holder. 12cm wide at the base.
Excellent fully working vintage condition with no chips and only very minor signs of age.
Rewired with light blue vintage look braided cable and a switch on the cable for ease of use.
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/energy saving 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. This lamp will take a European type/size lampshade with an Uno style ring diameter 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.
