A super retro pottery lamp base which I believe is by Celtic Pottery, Newlyn, Cornwall.

It's in the Medallion pattern, designed and made by Maggie Fisher & Ed Stevens in the 1970s (they were part of the same Cornish studio pottery movement as the highly collectable Troika). This lamp base features an 'incised' or resist pattern cut into dark brown - the patterns are pale grey/green and bubbled/speckled. The lower half is a dark brown black, with a lighter tan brown glossy strip to the middle upper. It tapers outwards then inwards, a squat UFO shape. The top has been fitted with a larger bayonet bulb socket fitting.

The distinctive patterns are Runic/Celtic inspired, with a Modernist retro shape. Would make a fab addition for any collector of Cornish or studio pottery and would complement any retro, vintage, 70s, modernist, minimalist or modern interior. A fascinating and functional sculptural artwork.

No maker's marks, but undoubtedly Celtic Pottery. The ceramic part is 12.5cm tall x 20cm wide, and with the bayonet light fitting it's 19cm tall. The lamp is fully functional (not PAT tested, just used by myself at home). It has an on/off switch on the upper fitting. You may want to update the lamp fittings.

Very good condition. Price includes P&P to the UK.

Absolutely love this little vintage pottery fish money box. Exactly what we were looking for - it looks super cute and will complete the aquatic theme in a newly decorated room. It arrived quickly and was very well packaged. Great service from CocoCollectables, will shop there again :)

I am so delighted to have found this gorgeous piece. A beautiful glaze, colour and form from one of my favourite West German makers Karlsruhe. It fits in perfectly with my collection (here it is with a bigger sibling). Sam was great to deal with: it came very carefully packaged and was dispatched and delivered promptly. I’d happily shop here again.
