I love this lamp and found it at a VNA thrift shop here on the Cape.  I’m assuming this is from the 40’s and am basing my assumption on the shape of the do-dadd underneath the horses chest.  It’s quite heavy and done in brown color but I can see slight shades of grey (metal?) shining through where the paint is chipped.  There isn’t much chipping going on here and I was quite happy to part with $7.00 for it.

I don’t believe this shade is vintage at all but what the hell, it came with the lamp.

Up close shot of the jockey and his horse.

With a nice, long cord attached to it and it works beautifully!

    Gorgeous! At first glance little conservative for my tastes but absolutely wonderful and classic and I would probably have this out. Mmmmm, yes, definitely wonderful.

    This turned out to be one of my favorite lamps. Glad you like it! What’s not to like for $7.00?

    I use it every evening.

    Great post…I love your lamp!! I’ve never seen one like it, I wish I knew who made it for you. Denny is it marked anywhere on the base or maybe on the horse with a name or logo?
    Really beautiful!!!
