Soholm Pottery Blue Danish Table Lamp 3043 Maria Philippi 1960s Scandinavian Light
Vintage Danish Pottery Blue Ceramic Table Lamp.
This is part of a new collection of stock. 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.
We recommend that dark blue, dark brown and black cable will work well with this lamp.
Small lamp, handmade in Denmark in the 1960s/70s
Has a slightly textured unglazed biscuit coloured neck.
The lower part has a beautiful bright blue glaze with amber and caramel highlights.
Designed by Maria Philippi for Soholm Stentoj (pottery).
Handmade in Denmark on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has designer’s initials, manufacturer's details and model number etched on its base.
Approximately 20cm high including the lamp holder and 12cm wide at the base.
Excellent vintage condition with only very minor signs of age.
Will be rewired with vintage fabric cable and a new switch, retaining its original lampholder.
We can fit a British/Irish, European, Aus/NZ 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.
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.
There may also be slight differences in colour depending on the device the product is viewed on.
