Your wish has been granted! Behold the beauty of this Chinese-themed wishing well TV lamp.

This swell Silvestri Bros. chalkware creation is a fantastic example of mid-fifties kitsch. Chalkware breaks very easily, so excellent examples like this are hard to come by. There are little holes for inserting plastic greenery if you dare, but proceed with caution, as it might make this lamp dangerously swanky!

The Pittsburgh-based Silvestri Bros. Co. hand-signed each piece with care, as evidenced in one of the photos.

The lamp measures 12”W x 10”H x 8”D and has space for one bulb. Probably too wide for one of them new-fangled flat-screen doohickeys, but it sure looks fab on a shelf!
