Tremaen Lamp Base

We went to the Mid Century Modern Show at Dulwich College yesterday and although we couldn’t find the sideboard we were after, we did finally manage to get a large ceramic lamp base. We’ve wanted one for ages now (see previous post) and it seems our waiting has paid off…

Whilst it may not be to everyones tastes, we think it’s a fine object. It was made by Tremaen Pottery sometime between 1972 and 1978 and is from their Sculptural series, with this style known as Bowjey. The Bowjey style came in a variety of colours with ours being cream with greeny blue highlighting.

It stands about 16″ or 45cm high and is in perfect condition. We paid a bit over the odds for it I think, but then it was at a show and it was still a bargain, being exactly what we wanted… Now all we have to do is find a big shade to go with it.

We also ended up with this rather wonderful teak fish tray. A fell in love with him on sight and he just had to come and live on our living room wall, keeping all the other animals company.
