I currently have no information regarding the chalkware TV lamp manufacturer Melrose-Lamps Co.
After acquiring hundreds of ceramic TV lamps, this is my first chalkware lamp. The use of a female matador adds charm to this interesting design. It is marked "Melrose-Lamps Co." on the back.

This TV lamp from Melrose-Lamps has to be the most charming design ever rendered in plaster. The skill put into sculpting the lamp, and the beautifully executed details, make this one a winner! Photos courtesy of an eBayer from Lebanon, PA.

Melrose Lamps selected a popular subject-matter, an exotic couple from a distant land, with this plaster lamp.
