vintage Rathjen Australian Pink Pottery Table Lamp with rare pink fitting
19cm tall pottery base 27.5cm with fitting 35cm with shade
Rathjen Pottery is the very interesting Australian pottery of Henning Rathjen active in the 50’s and 60’s.. now attracting a lot of interest from Australian pottery collectors, especially the modernist designs.
This one a more traditional motif of vine leaves with attractively shaped pierced design. The glaze is deeply textured, very typical of Rathjen. A subtle light pink colour, unusually this one has a matching mottled pink light fitting, the original early plastic (sometimes called Bakelite) in Art Deco form. I’ve never seen these in pink before, and I think it adds to the interest of this very appealing little lamp. The photos with white background show truer colour.
