Vintage Oil Rain Hanging Swag Lamp with Nude Goddess. The lamp is about 30 inches long and is in very good condition.

    I remember those lamps from South Philly in the 70s. All the Italians had them in their living rooms along with clear plastic covers over their ornately carved sofas.If you were wearing shorts,your legs stuck to the plastic.It was better to sit in the kitchen,closer to the smell of home made gravy and raviolis.

    Hah, there is still one of these hanging in my grandmother's house. Funny you should mention Philly, she lives relatively close on the other side of the Delaware.

    OMG! I remember this lamp. These pics snapped me right back into my childhood. My best friends parents had one in the 70's. I remember being fascinated with watching the oil run down this thing. I also remember how much dust was attracted to it. Thanks for the memories.

    Had one of these rain lamps & one of the reasons I got rid of it was the huge amounts of dust that accumulated on the filaments on which the oil dripped down, the plastic foliage & the figure inside. Found this interesting web site about rain lamps.

    Where can u buy this lamp? My grandmother had one in her living room in her adult park trailer next to her organ and I always loved it.

    Mikejiggawhat, I see this come up on craigslist pretty regularly. There are different figures in some of them, but this one is the most popular. Make sure it is a working one and keep it clean like Maltamary says.

    I use to have a lamp just like this one. It was so beautiful with the oil running down the strings. It's a keeper.
