25cm high including the original brown Bakelite lamp holder. 8cm wide. In excellent vintage condition.
It is in full working condition. It has been rewired with a vintage style black braided fabric cable. It has a British/Irish plug but we can fit a European, Aus/NZ plug (free) 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 will probably work but because they are 1mm smaller they should be fully turned to ensure they make contact with the fitting. Alternatively, E27 bulbs should available online in North America.
A note on lampshades. We sell our lamps without lampshades but they are all suitable for lampshades. Shading the glare from lighting is actually intrinsic to the Danish design and living (hygge) ethos. Poul Henningsen's classic pendant lamp is the perfect example of the Danish design approach to form and function - the multiple, angled layers of the pendant were specifically engineered to completely eliminate glare. 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
