1950s Italian designed by Aldo Londi and manufactured by Bitossi ceramic pottery table lamp base.  Following some research I believe it may have originally been a candlestick but converted to a table lamp in the past.  The antique brass bulb holder has the on/off switch fitted into it which is accessed beneath the shade.  It's been converted well because the flex is hidden and runs through the tapered column shaped base exiting through a drilled hole close to the base.  The dark brown, almost black, and white lamp features a fresco of medieval battle scenes around it with the jug handle at the top making it easy to move to other areas of the room.  A manufacturer's stamp is on the base.  Rewired with a black silk flex and in full working order.

The shade is not included in the price. I recommend shipping the item without a shade and purchasing one locally in order to make the packing and postage costs cheaper which are usually more than what a shade would cost to buy.  It also means you can choose one in a shape and colour that suits your taste and matches your decor.  If you'd like the shade it's £50.00 plus postage.

Dimensions:  Diameter: 9.5cm Height to the top of the socket: 42cm Height to the top of the shade: 59cm
