Horse TV LampThe horse TV lamp shown here isn’t particularly rare, but holds great interest for me because I almost know the maker. As with all the important historical quests (who made the pyramids, where’s Jimmy Hoffa, why didn’t TV lamps also play 8-track tapes), it’s all about the search. For some unknown reason, and I’m speaking only for myself, unearthing the history of these lamps matters. In the great scheme of things TV lamps are pretty small-potatoes, and I suppose I research them with a passion that’s, well…maybe a little irrational. But hey, I might be remembered for my contributions one day. TV lamps might be seen as a significant part of 20th century culture and I’ll be regarded as a pioneer, my headstone topped with a granite panther… illuminated, of course. (gotta remember to specify that part about the grave-site electrical outlet in my will…)

Mystery LabelOK Mark, focus…focus on the topic… oh yea, that horse lamp. I’m dying to find out who made it! My curiosity is up because of the foil label (what’s left of it) that is on the front. So many lamps have been identified as to the maker only because a single example has shown up with a label… and this one is incomplete! (some thoughtless individual apparently tried to remove it, resulting in all this trauma) All I can get out of it, and even this could be wrong, is “Genuine **** **** by ****. The third word might be Crystal, but that wouldn’t make much sense. And the last word, the important one…is it “Breslin”? I’ve stared at this, tried some Photoshop trickery to enhance it, but to no avail. Anyone familiar with this label?
