Television Lamp, 1947-1960

Summary

This type of lamp is typically called a "Television Lamp." It was made to sit atop a television console and to provide a level of illumination, though low, still sufficient to keep one's eyes from being "harmed" by watching the small TV screens of that time (1946-1960). The fiberglass shade behind the panther diffused the light away from the television.
