    I picked up this large 'nightlight' from a picker today. it is the most bizarre piece of kitsch i've seen in a long time. i have no idea when it was made, but the ceramic is completely intact - no cracks or anything which was very surprising. unfortunately, it needs to be completely re-wired and there are a lot of wires in it. when was this made?

      This was made just after Tesla died and before good taste.

      Just kidding...what an awesomely fantastical and colourful piece of porcelain.
      Have to admire and love it!

      I think kitsch is appropriate ;-)

      Based on the LED bulbs, 1980's possibly.

      thanks everyone. see the gold claw on it? it has 4 toes. does that mean anything?

      That's the green dragon's claw. Mom of the other little dragons. She's breaking up a birthday party brawl. Cake frosting everywhere.

      Love your strange little light, ho2cultcha. :)

      It is intriguing. I was looking around and found this clock with a dragon:

      thank YOU Katherinescollections! it's not really so little though. it stands almost two ft tall!
    12. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 7 years ago
      Ah, okay, I misunderstood the nightlight remark! Hmm. Could it be a TV lamp?
    13. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 7 years ago
      YES! that's exactly what it is. i said nightlight because it wouldn't put out much light. a tv lamp! that's new to me.

      I didn't know about TV lamps myself until I read about them here. :)
