Soholm Pottery Danish Blue Table Lamp Bedside Vintage 1960s 1004
Vintage Danish Pottery Ceramic Table Lamp
Small blue studio pottery table lamp handmade in Denmark in the 1960s.
Matt glazed finely textured espresso brown neck and very dark blue smooth glossy base.
The glaze has lighter blue, light green and caramel highlights that give it a purplish effect.
Designed by Maria Phillipi as part of her Nordlys (Northern Lights) series for Soholm Pottery Studio.
Has the manufacturer’s name and model number 1004 etched to its base.
Handmade on the Baltic island of Bornholm, Denmark in the 1960s.
Excellent vintage fully working condition.
19cm high, including the lamp holder, and 10cm wide at the base.
It has been rewired with a vintage style dark blue braided cable and bronze lamp holder.
We can fit a British/Irish, European*, Australian/NZ or American** 3 pin plug.
It takes a B22 lamp, maximum 60w (not included) but we will provide a E26/E27 adapter (free) 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 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.
* European option: we will send an adapter so you can use E27 light bulbs, although in Europe you will be able to buy B22 light bulbs online from the UK.
** USA option: we will send an adapter so you can use E26 light bulbs. In the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using an energy saving/LED bulb. This lamp will take a European/UK type & size lampshade with a ring of 1.5 inches (3.6cm) or 1 inch (2.6cm) or alternatively a lampshade that sits on the light bulb. See FAQs for full details.

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 variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
Handmade items may have slight imperfections, such as air bubbles in glass, which add to their uniqueness and charm.
