Other versions: This Vitrika amber glass wall lamp exists in a few variations. The Vitrika company produced several lamps in this style. Many lamps were produced with amber glass.


Vitrika was founded in 1948 by a designer, a salesman, and a craftsman. The name comes from the Danish words “vi tre kan” (we three can). They had their own very unique style and mostly made their lights out of metal; brass alloy or copper and glass, and always of outstanding quality.

Vitrika kept producing lamps until 1996 when they re-located the company to Gørløse, also in Denmark and changed their name into Junge & Vitrika.

Today they are a wholesale business in light bulbs and electric parts for lamps such as transformers, switches and fuses, and they go by the name JV Lighting. They still produce some lighting: light fixtures and wall lamps for office and warehouse and magnifying glass table lamps.

Their official name is still Junge & Vitrika though.
