TV lamps were everywhere for about a decade. When television became the centerpiece of the typical household, there was a general belief that watching television without a source of ambient light in the room damaged your eyeballs. So people bought lamps specifically to put on the top of television sets, to turn on while watching for ophthalmological health.
For some reason, they’re usually glazed animals. Sometimes mermaids. Often panthers. Sold! I need one.
This Asian one is rad.
The panther-lover special.
Some are pots AND lamps. Dig it.
