Columbia Statuary Incorporated was based in Chicago (as was Universal Statuary and, I think, Puccini Art Novelty Co.), but many of their chalkware items, usually religious themes, are marked Italy. The significance of that marking is unclear.
This lovely Madonna and Child TV lamp is in excellent condition! Photos courtesy of Lin from Gloucester, MA.

|The back is clearly marked Columbia Statuary Inc. © 1966. The year 1966 appears on a large number of Columbia Statuary products.|
Columbia Statuary's leopard is nicely detailed and colored. The same TV lamp can be found with a Puccini marking. Photos courtesy of an anonymous eBayer.
Although not a TV lamp in the strictest sense, I had to include this ambitious creation from Columbia Statuary. At 16½" tall (not including fixture), this tropical lady would dominate any room! Photos courtesy of Richard from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
|Our exotic lady is the picture of serenity!|
|The Columbia Statuary folks detailed this lamp with great care.|
|Back view. It is marked, Columbia Statuary Co. ©G.P. 1878. The "G.P." could be "C.P.", and the 1878 has to be a model number, not the date!|
