Serenade Radio Lamp w/ Amber Brain Glass Shade Item # R8899

Circa 1930s

On Sale!

$450.00 $600.00

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 example, which likely dates from the late 1930's, is cast from soft metal and finished with polychrome paint. Capped with an amber "brain glass" shade, and featuring a pair of charmingly passionate minstrels before a castle, it is marked with the caption "Serenade."

  • Historical Style: Romance Revival
  • Condition Notes: Plenty of wear in the original finish – all commensurate with age and use.
  • Bulbs not included.
