Vintage AK Porcelain German White Ceramic Table Lamp 1960s Retro Pottery Ivory Blue Flowers Floral
Vintage AK Pottery White German Ceramic Table Lamp
Large vintage porcelain lamp with an attractive floral design in muted colours.
Features a glossy white glaze with a blue design on the front.
Made by AK (Alka-Kunst) Kaiser Porcelain Works in Bavaria, Germany between 1967 and 1970 (this backstamp was only used for those three years).
Has its manufacturer’s details on its base.
It is 30cm high including the original Bakelite lampholder and 10cm wide at its base.
Excellent full working vintage condition with only very minor signs of age.
It has been rewired with a vintage style dark blue braided fabric cable.
We can fit a UK/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 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.
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.
