Terrific vintage table lamp which is a one of a kind. The wood looks like very old KOA. Lots of classic detail and style. It does work, but original wiring. There is a very old picture of a water skiing girl. This picture shows wear, think someone was mad at the girl, seems the face has scratches. Show old wood water ski, which probably helps to date lamp.
Approximate 15 inch high. On the base there is a wood container, looks like it could have had a lid with the rim inside. This was probably designed as an ink well. Lots of charm, needs to be cleaned up and loved and then ready for a lot more years of use.
(This is a message I received from a collector) "It's hard to say on the base, but the lamp portion is not Koa Wood, it's a Cypress Knee & appears to have been added to the base on there now. I have one very similar to what you have, just mine has more knees to it and it comes from an artist in Winter Haven, Florida. The original owner of Cypress Gardens "Dick Pope" in Winter Haven had several of these made back in the 60's & were sold at Cypress Gardens. Even though it's not Koa wood, it may have more value because Mr. Pope only had 20 of these made and due to the expense of them back in the 60's most of them were given to the family members & only a few sold at the gift shop!"
Thanks for looking, shopping and your purchase.
