Vintage 1950's tv lamp/fish bowl made by the Bilt Rite Mfg. Company. The design is classic fifties kitsch, with its cream & gold speckled finish and space-age motif. Behind the wavy glass fish bowl is a campy mid-west motif of a rushing river & mountains. All for your fish's pleasure.
And for those of you who prefer a no maintenance variety, there are two hand-blown glass bubble goldfish to complete the set.

These iconic mid-century finds are quite rare and are usually found in less than perfect condition due to the combination of the metal construction & the constant humidity from the water. Fortunately, this one is near mint & in perfect working order with only minor issues to note: a slight yellowing on the top rim of the fiberglass shade {a result of the old glue} and four small areas of light surface rust on the interior's base. The base measures 11 3/4" L x 6" T x 4 1/2" W.

This classic piece of mid century kitsch was such an awesome find! We plucked him from a dusty old antiques shop while traveling through the mid west; and although he didn't have a price tag, we knew he was coming home with us.

We invite you to peruse our shop for more mid century finds @ http://www.etsy.com/shop/HomeologyVintage
