What a Roman charioteer would be doing galloping across the top of a radio cabinet we couldn't say, but this fellow may have been doing just that for decades before he found his way to us. Popular from the late 1920s through the Depression, cast white metal radio lamps like this were the mantel clocks of their era - stylish focal points positioned for maximum visual impact at the center of home and hearth.

This particular version of the ever-popular charioteer features sharper detail in the castings than some we've seen, and an unusually styled amber globe, with classical gadroons above and crackled 'brain glass' pattern below.
