In the 50s, novelty TV lamps were the choice of many Americans to place on top of their televisions, casting a warm glow while watching their favorites shows.
This lamp is ceramic, by Premco (stamped on the back side, it's hard to read) and has a high gloss black glaze with red and shiny metallic gold accents.
It's in the shape of a traditional house boat, and has a figurine on each side of the captain's cabin.
This measures 15" from front to back, it is 5" wide and 12.75" to top of socket (7.25" to top of cabin)
In excellent condition, with no flaws.
Although the bulb is at the top of the socket (and it does work) , we can't help but wonder if a secondary bulb could be fitted below so it could shine out of the portholes windows; that'd be kind of neat.
This is for the lamp only; the shade is not included.
