This retro television lamp is backed by a large pink conch sea shell that reflects and enhances the glow from the night light size bulb hidden inside. Embedded into the transparent green epoxy resin base are more pretty shells surrounding two plastic palm trees. I've sold quite a few seashell lamps over the years but this one is especially attractive and pretty.
The lamp is 8 inches wide by about 7-3/4" high. It works fine and is in great condition with no chips or damage. The 4-1/2 foot cord has an on/off switch and the older style non-polarized plug. The light bulb is red which doesn't throw off much illumination but it can easily be changed to white, clear, or a different color. Unmarked but these lamps were popular seaside resort souvenirs in Florida and elsewhere from the late 1950s through 1960s.
