This is an unusual buy for us, but is just so cute we had to bring it home!
For the moment the main light works but there appears to be a broken wire under the little bird so will probably get a total rewire this week. I think it is made of metal, glass and bakelite with the bird being moulded frosted glass.
The pull switch has a double action which should, I hope, make the lights work independently of each other.
The height to the top of the bakelite lightbulb holder is 8 1/2 inches..........the shade is not original to it.
There is an impressed mark of either an M or a W on the base as well as a remnant of a label by the look of it.
I have researched and the only similar ones I have seen are by PIFCO 1930/40s, but their mark on the base is quite different.
Has anyone seen one before? Pretty nice I think.......hope you like it!
