This cutie hootie is in excellent original condition with some crazing but no chips, dings, nicks, or damage in the ceramic exterior or interior. Standing 11.5" high with a 9.5" wingspread, our owl is 5.5" in depth. All original wiring is intact. There is some cord damage, as can be seen in the final photo of the lamp's cord. New lightbulb is included.

"Kron" TV lamps were designed by Howard Kron, a talented artist and ceramics engineer who was the primary designer for Texans Incorporated, a ceramics manufacturer in the small Texas town of Bangs. Along with co-designer Richard Gunter, Kron created TV lamps, table lamps and various other products for Texans Inc. for almost 30 years. In the early days, the lampshade manufacturing and sales and marketing branch of the company was called Texas Ceramic Studio, Texans Incorporated being the ceramics manufacturing side of the company, but over time the entire operation became Texans Inc. Most of Kron's designs are simply marked Kron, although Gunter-Kron, RAG, Howard and a myriad of other markings can be found on certain examples. Responsible for some of the most popular TV lamps (his Siamese Cats being a huge seller), Kron also designed many lamps that were made in comparatively small numbers. Some of these are just now becoming known to collectors, as they seldom left the State of Texas prior to the rise of eBay. As with the Leland Claes designs, online auctions have caused prices on the rare Kron lamps to increase, and only time will determine their ultimate worth.
