Soholm Pottery Red Ceramic Table Lamp Bedside Light Retro 1960s 1072
Soholm Pottery Einar Johansen Danish Table Lamp 1960s.
Unusual candy apple red and espresso brown handmade ceramic lamp.
Subtly textured, satin glazed neck and base in slightly shimmering espresso brown. The base is filled with a luscious pool of glassy candy apple red crackle glaze.
Designed by Einar Johansen for Soholm Stentoj.
Handmade by Soholm on the Danish island of Bornholm in the 1960s/70s.
Has Einar Johansen’s mark, its manufacturer’s name and model number 1072 etched to its base.
Excellent fully working vintage condition.
Approximately 23cm high, including the original white lamp holder, and 14cm wide.
It has been rewired with red vintage style braided cable and a white switch.
We can fit a British/Irish, European*, Australian/NZ or American* plug.
It takes a E27 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included). The bulb in the photos is a vintage-look G95 LED Filament bulb.
*If used in the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using an energy saving/LED bulb. E26 bulbs should fit but because they are 1mm smaller may need to be fully turned to ensure they make contact with the fitting. This lamp will take a European type/size lampshade with a ring diameter 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. 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.
