Small unusual handmade studio pottery lamp.
Made in Sweden by Tilgmans in the 1960s.
Has a rustic unglazed chocolate brown base with textured black highlights.
Features bird designs with elements of glossy glaze in light blue.
The lamp has 'M 63' etched onto the side which is believed to be the maker's initial and the year it was made.
Has 'Tilgmans Sweden' on the base.
Will be rewired with vintage look braided cable. Light blue, brown and black will all look good with this lamp.
25cm high including the vintage Bakelite lamp holder. 10cm wide at their widest point.
Very good fully working vintage condition.
Will be rewired with vintage style braided cable, retaining the original Bakelite lamp holder.
We can fit a British/Irish, European, Aus/NZ or American* plug.
It takes an E27 lightbulb, maximum 60w (not included).
* In the USA/100/110/120v we recommend using LED/energy saving lightbulbs. E26 bulbs should fit but because they are 1mm smaller you will need to turn the bulb fully to ensure it makes contact with the fitting. This lamp will take a European type/size lampshade with an Uno style 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. If you contact her with a picture of the lamp you have bought she will make suggestions on a lampshade to suit it.
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.
