Item No: D78
This is a lampbase produced by the Søholm Pottery on the island of Bornholm, Denmark. Several sizes of the lamp were produced from the end of the 1940's onwards and was one of the company's most successful lamp styles. Known as "Heiberg Lamps", the origin we believe came from a painting dated 1870 and shown in Image 2 of Danish writer, poet and playwright Johan Ludvig Heiberg and his wife at home. On the table is an oil lamp, which is very similar to the Soholm lamps.
Our example is just under 29cm high to the top of the uppermost brass band. The company mark can be seen by dismantling the brass base. Image 5 is from the book on the company published by Bornholms Museum and shows 3 lamps. Please note the lamp has the original electric fittings. Weight: 1200g
