Soholm Pottery Danish Ceramic Table Lamp Peacock 1960s
Soholm Pottery Danish Ceramic Table Lamp.
Absolutely beautiful medium sized lamp, handmade in Denmark in the 1960s/70s.
Features an unglazed rustic biscuit coloured neck and a glossy pecan brown and blue glazed lower half with mottled amber and powder blue highlights.
The lower half has a ring of textured relief leaf-shapes, and has lighter blue and amber highlights.
Designed by Arne Finne Nielsen for Soholm Pottery.
Handmade in Denmark on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has its manufacturer’s details and designer's initials glazed on its base.
It is 23cm high including the white Bakelite lamp holder, and 11cm wide at its base.
Excellent full working vintage condition.
It has been rewired with vintage style dark blue braided fabric cable and a new switch, retaining its original Bakelite lamp holder.
We can fit a British/Irish, 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. 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. Full details of lampshades can be found under FAQs.

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.
