Description

When radios became common place in the 1930's and '40's, consumers were afraid that the low glow emitting from the radio dial would damage their eye sight. So, charming Radio Lamps became popular, adding a little more light to the room and often serving the dual purpose of decorating the otherwise "homely" technology. Thus by the time televisions came along in the 50's, it was traditional to have a small decorative lamp atop your entertainment cabinet, and 'Radio Lamps' became 'Television Lamps'.

This funky example, which dates from the slightly later 1960's, features a flexible resin parchment shade, adorned with sequins and tinsel and flanked by two happy sunfish. Keep swimming!
