moreOffered for consideration is a vintage 1970s Bitossi for Raymor pottery table lamp featuring an earth tone drip glaze over a very large bulbous form. The pottery was hand-thrown and would have required exceptional skill to make such a large size.This is a great example of how Bitossi pieces changed and stayed current through changes in design tastes. In the 70s there was a shift from the very tall colorful lamps of the 60s. Interior lighting fashion shifted to lower table lamp heights with more of an emphasis on organic colors and shapes.
The lamp is in very good condition. No chips, no cracks and no repairs. The piece retains the original Raymor label.
There are several light reflections in the photographs. This is not damage. As with any fine glazed pottery, color appearance is somewhat changeable depending on external lighting conditions.
The electric components have been tested and the lamp is in working order. The cord is still pliable with no apparent cracking or exposed wire. Even with the previous being stated, it is always suggested that lighting with vintage wiring be inspected by an electrician prior to use.
