African Princess Black Ceramic Dresser Lamp with Red Fiberglass Shade

I Like Mike's Mid-Century Modern

This iconic little 1950's black and red dresser lamp has more beauty than kitsch, but there is a healthy dose of both. The black onyx ceramic female bust is in excellent condition and has surprising elegance. We particularly love how her regal bearing transforms lampchain into convincing jewelry. Her fiberglass lampshade head dress has not fared quite as well, having lost much of its color where an incandescent bulb burned hot...but since our new light bulbs are cool, this problem is no longer. We're happy the same cannot be said for this charming lamp. Rewired and ready to grace your home.

16" H x 5" W x 4" D

We have the identical lamp with a white shade as well.
