This is an original 1930-40's Hawaiian Hula Girl motion lamp manufactured by the Dodge Inc. of Chicago. Dodge was the same company that manufactured statues for both the Oscar and Emmy awards for roughly 52 years. This style is affectionately known as the “headache lamp” because of how the hula dancer is holding onto her Haku headpiece. The lamp is in excellent and original condition. The only modification is a replacement hula skirt and a new 12 ft. power cord. She works perfectly and quietly from a switch on the base plate and sways in a smooth hula motion. The three-way switch (on the base) can be turned for just the hula motion, the hula motion and light, or just the light.
The bronze finish on the spelter metal body of this lamp is original and still in beautiful condition. There are no dents, corrosion or damage. The lamp shade pictured is included but is not original to the lamp.
Size is 16” to the top of the girls head and 27” to the top of the lamp. Extra care will be taken in packaging for shipping.
I put a short video of this lamp in motion on You Tube but I can't attach a link to this ad. You can find it by logging in to You Tube and searching for " Dodge Hula Girl Lamp on Ruby Lane".
