Soholm Pottery Danish Ceramic Table Lamp 1960s Vintage Retro Scandinavian
Vintage Soholm Pottery Danish Ceramic Table Lamp
Designed by Noomi Backhausen, model number 3068.
Handmade in Denmark by Soholm Pottery on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s. Has its manufacturer’s details and model number etched on its base.
Features an ivory glazed rustic stoneware base with a bright blue and olive green pattern.
Very good full working vintage condition with only minor signs of age. It is 26cm high including the original lampholder and 14cm wide at its base.
It has been rewired with a vintage style bright blue braided fabric cable. It has a British/Irish plug but we can fit a European, Aus/NZ plug 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.
A note on lampshades. We sell our lamps without lampshades but they are nearly all suitable for lampshades. Shading the glare from lighting is actually intrinsic to the Danish design and living (hygge) ethos. Poul Henningsen's classic pendant lamp is the perfect example of the Danish design approach to form and function - the multiple, angled layers of the pendant were specifically engineered to completely eliminate glare. 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
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. But unless otherwise stated there will be no chips or similar damage. 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.
