60s Ceramic German Table /Floor Lamp


These lamps are from an era of West German pottery known as Fat Lava. From researching this lamp, I understand that these lamps and other vases and pots were manufactured from the 50s and through to the 70s and by a number of factories based in West Germany that produced a range of signature shapes and glazes. Some of them are truly wild, and are becoming quite collectable when available, obviously fragile items.

A beautiful vintage mid century West German pottery fat lava table lamp in great condition, no chips or cracks to the pottery base. The original lamp shade is also included and is in good condition, no cracks or burns; there is an old glue mark to the bottom edge of the shade at the seam ( this is shown in one of our photos ).

We have tried out this lamp over a number of days in our own home and all electrics seem to be in good working order. However this has not been PAC tested by a qualified electrician and has the original wiring plus what seems to be an added on extension (this is shown in one of our photos).

Our Delivery Policy
Safely delivering items you purchase in a timely fashion is both our priority and also one of the most challenging aspects of our business.
In most circumstances, we offer free hand delivery, contact-free, to most mainland UK addresses, either by ourselves or via our dedicated, trusted, couriers. This ensures that your purchases arrive in exactly the condition they were in when you purchased them, as accurately described on our site. You should expect delivery to be within 1 to 3 weeks of you placing the order. We will contact you directly with a firm delivery date and advise you in advance of a two hour delivery window. Free delivery does not apply to areas of mainland UK not covered by our trusted couriers - if this applies to your purchase, we will simply charge you what we are charged for delivery, less any Etsy fees, and notify you of this as soon a practicable after the sale goes through, giving you the option of a full refund.
We are able to package and export items beyond mainland UK and have done so as far afield as Hong Kong and New Zealand. We regularly export to Northern Ireland and Eire and the majority of Europe. Please contact us directly for a tailored quotation.
When ordering, please supply us with your mobile phone number, so we may liaise directly with you regarding delivery. Please advise if there are any delivery restrictions that will apply (such as access, parking restrictions, congestion charge etc.).
Please note that if we are unable to deliver on a pre-arranged day, you will be charged a flat fee of £50 for re-delivery.
