Ceramic Sail Boat / Ship TV Light FREE SHIPPING!
Placed atop your TV or bookshelf, she glides on ceramic waves tilted slightly up at the front. Metal posts firmly hold the metal sails up and strong, and floss rope holds the sails in place in the front and back. I was told that there used to be other “ropes” on this piece, but even without all of them she is “Yar!”. The Glaze is a pearlescent pink and still very shiny!
Remarkably, since this piece is certainly from as early on as the 50’s, there are no chips or cracks or crazing….here is the best part…the light works beautifully as you can see in the photos. Light gleams from the little portholes and captains windows and a red plastic covers the 2 top openings to give it a reddish hue. The little turn on and off button works perfectly and easily.
The rubberized chord is in great shape and is a simple old style 2 prong. The sails are a hard metal and they are pitted, (they could probably be buffed up more), but still very silvery looking and are not bent. Little pennant flags rest on top of the sails and are adjustable.
No markings on the bottom and she measures 16L x 14H 3.5W.
One final note: This beautiful work of utilitarian vintage art was rescued as it was on its way to the dumpster. Here is what I was told by the person who handed it to me: “The ship lamp came from a little old lady on El Sereno Ave. Her granddaughter and husband were moving in with her to take care of her and had cleared out things they saw as junk.” (Can you imagine calling this junk!!!?), “She brought me out a stool so I could climb into the dumpster more easily…” …thus effectively rescuing it from the dumpster. She passed it on to me, knowing I sell quality items. We got her this far. Take her home and let her continue her journey for the next 50 years. She will guide you through your family evenings as you gather to watch your favorite shows. This is how childhood memories are born.
This pkg will be shipped marked "Fragile" and extra padding will be used.
