Soholm Danish Amber Purple Table Lamp Vintage 961 1960s
Soholm Pottery Danish Amber Blue Ceramic Table Lamp
Stunning small lamp, made in Denmark in the 1960s/70s
A small handmade vintage lamp in an unusual shape and beautiful colours.
Features a smooth glossy glaze in warm caramel amber with light purple, light blue and lemon yellow highlights.
Handmade in Denmark by Soholm on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has manufacturer's details and model number 961 etched on its base.
It has been refurbished with a vintage look zinc lamp holder and light blue braided cable that complement it beautifully.
22cm high including the zinc lamp holder. 8cm wide at the base.
Excellent fully working vintage condition.
Fully refurbished with a vintage style zinc lamp holder and light blue fabric cable.
We can fit a British/Irish, European, Aus/NZ or American* plug.
It takes a B22 bulb, 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, or prefer a E26/7 fitting, please let us know and we will change the lamp holder to a standard plastic E26/7 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 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. 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.
