Makes a collection? These lamps are nothing but audacious. Perfect kitch. Below is my first lamp of this sort.
The light comes from inside the big spiral shell. It is a soft, hazy pink. The shells are imbedded in plaster, and then the plaster is painted. They are quite heavy for their size. Not at the beach a lot, these were new to me when I moved east.
Above is my second lamp. It was marked with a very old tag, “9.99”. Cannot remember how much I paid, but not near that. The light comes from behind the two glittered and glitzy sea forms behind the plastic dolphins.
Although it doesn’t look like it here, this lamp is almost twice as big as the first two; around 12 inches at the base. This base has the most deliberate painting on it, and two plastic parts, similar to the dolphins in the second lamp. I paid eight dollars for it yesterday, and think it quite a deal! Light comes from inside both big shells.
Are two life-sized carnival chalk dogs enough for a collection?
