Vintage Soholm Pottery Petrol Blue Danish Ceramic Table Lamp Bedside Lighting Retro Design
Vintage Danish Pottery Ceramic Table Lamp.
Small petrol blue (grey blue with a green tinge) studio pottery table lamp.
Handmade by a Soholm in Denmark in the 1960s/70s.
Glossy petrol blue glaze with textured relief design.
Probably designed by Einar Johansen as all the similar designs are attributed to him.
Made by Soholm Pottery on the Baltic island of Bornholm, Denmark in the 1960s/70s.
Excellent vintage fully working condition.
22cm high, including the original Bakelite lamp holder, and 9cm wide at the base.
In the last photo is another lamp of the same model available for separate purchase.
It has been rewired with a vintage style black braided cable, retaining the original Bakelite lamp holder.
We can fit a British/Irish, European, Australian/NZ 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.
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.
