Nursery Lamp!
Such a sweet vintage chalkware nursery lamp!! Talk about the perfect shabby/cottage nursery lamp - simply gorgeous!!

Chalkware was very popular in mid century America, making decorative figurines more affordable. Chalkware is not actually made of chalk, but of plaster. Most Chalkware today shows signs of chipping, peeling paint and cracking. You'll notice in the photos that this lamp is definitely chippy - but that adds only to it's charm. It's very rare to find chalkware without this type of aging, and it rarely affects value.

Bashful baby has blue eyes and blond hair. The base is a light aqua blue and has the manufacturers date, 1948, stamped into it. This lamp works, but due to age, you may consider rewiring before using it!

Approximately 11 1/2" tall and 4" in diameter at the base.

Lovely chippy paint!
