We have for sale a genuine c. 1940's Walt Disney Productions Jose "Joe" Carioca ceramic table lamp made by American Pottery (Los Angeles).Joe was the cigar smoking Brazilian parrot of Walt Disney's The Three Cabelleros. It has its VERY RARE matching Carioca original shade, original socket/switch, original wire and plug as well as its original oval American Pottery foil label (see photos).
Although the lamp was issued by Railley Corp. The figurine was made by Shaw/American Pottery. The ceramic figurine portion of the lamp is in overall excellent condition without any chips, repairs or cracks, however, there is some light surface crazing commensurate with age but the appearance remains excellent (see photos). The Joe Carioca portion of the lamp measures approx. 6 3/4 high; the total lamp height including the shade measures approx.
The shade is in overall excellent condition and is structurally sound; commensurate with age and usage there some light surface staining along the joint line of the shade and a few areas of small surface crease marks and smudges but, overall the shade presents extremely well and has no dents, repairs or tears. We took the photos outside in daylight in order to capture its condition. The wire three-pronged spider that supports the shade is a replacement.
