A vintage 1970s West German ceramic lamp by Carstens.This is a classic 70s style fat lava lamp that can be used as a floor or table-standing lamp depending on your choice of shade (not included.) The double handled ceramic body is very textural, with a rope texture as well as a bubbly foam glaze in shades of cream over dark brown.This may originally have been a vase that has been converted into a lamp, if so it has been done very well and quite a long time ago judging by the fitting - which takes a bayonet style lightbulb.This comes with flex with a lightswitch and plug still attached. We have not PAT tested this so use is at your own risk. It does work though.Including the fitting this is 41cm tall and weighs 1.7 Kg.This vase is around 40 years old and as such may be some signs of wear. I have not found any flaws aside from the chip on the base which you can see in the base shot.This item is available for shipping within the UK only.
