Soholm Pottery Olive Green Danish Ceramic Table Lamp 1960s 1970s Khaki Vintage Retro Scandinavian
Small Soholm Pottery Danish Ceramic 1960s Table Lamp
Features a glossy olive green glaze with bronze, dark amber and pale green highlights and a ‘tiger stripe’ design.
Designed by Arne Finne and Noomi Backhausen. Signed ‘AN’.
Handmade in Denmark by Soholm Pottery on the Baltic island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has manufactuer's details, artists initials and model number etched on its base.
Very good full working vintage condition with only minor signs of age.
It is 20cm high including the original lampholder and 11cm wide at its base.
It has been rewired with a vintage style bronze lamp holder and brown braided cable. We can fit a British/Irish, European*, Australian/NZ or American** plug.
It takes a B22 lamp, 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 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.
* 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
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.
