Soholm Blue Purple Danish Table Lamp Vintage 1960s Retro Scandinavian Light
Soholm Pottery Danish Blue Ceramic Table Lamp - Stunning large lamp, handmade in Denmark in the 1960s/70s
Features a glossy glaze in shades of blue with wonderful highlights in warm caramel and lemon yellow. The overall effect of the mottled light blue and caramel glaze on the neck is of a warm purplish colour. The shimmering glazed design varies around the lamp and looks different from different angles and in different lights.
A rare, very elegant and truly beautiful large lamp - one that will be coveted for years to come.
Model number 941. Designed by Einar Johansen.
Handmade in Denmark by Soholm Stentoj (Pottery) on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s. Has manufacturer's details and model number etched on its base.
It has been fully refurbished with a vintage style zinc lamp holder and light blue vintage look braided cable that complement the lamp beautifully.
43cm high including the vintage style zinc lampholder. 12cm wide at the base.
Excellent vintage condition with no chips and only very minor signs of age.
Fully working condition. Rewired with 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).
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.
* 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.
