In 1942 JEMA Holland was born out of a partnership of two brothers, Jelis and Johan Willem Mager, who took over an existing ceramic works in the city of Maastricht, Netherlands.

Due to the war years and a number of site relocations, it wasn't until 1955 that the brothers created the company name which we're familiar with today, with JEMA coming from the first and second names Jelis (JE) and Mager (MA).

The company produced a variety of ceramics through the peak of the mid-twentieth century, finally closing their doors in 1984.

A ceramic table lamp from the company's series of kitsch ceramics, which date from the 1940s to 1950s.

This particular piece features two budgerigars in a grey and pink colour way, with the entire ceramic base having a lustre finish. So fun, so kitsch! The ceramic is in excellent condition, with no real surface wear that we can see.

We have kept the original lamp shade, which shows some wear, but we thought it was such a fun piece we couldn't take it away.

It has been professionally rewired with a new cable to meet Australian electrical standards however.

This fun piece measures approx 38cm tall with the lamp shade, and 20cm to the top of the lamp without the shade. 

Marked JEMA Holland on the base, with the model number 323.
