Bagni Ceramiche, Ceramic Lamp Base with 'Smalto Roccia' Fat Lava Glaze
A vintage 1960s Italian ceramic lamp base with the characteristic Italian style of Fat Lava glaze called 'Smalto Roccia'. Made by Bagni Ceramiche and probably dating from the 1960s.
A lovely textural piece in shades of lilac and green - quite an unusual colour choice for this type of glaze. It has a stamped relief around it that is hard to see because of the thickness of the glaze.
Some of the glaze bubbles have burst, as is normal for this style.
The fitting has an on/off switch and takes a bayonet style light bulb.
This comes with flex, but there is no plug attached and we do not know if this lamp is functional. We have not PAT tested this so use is at your own risk.
Including the fitting this is 24cm tall and weighs 575g. In great vintage condition.
