Siamese Mother Cat and Kitten TV Lamp-Night Light

Designed by Howard Kron for Texans, Incorporated.


TV Lamps evolved from Radio Lamps--decor intended to crown the most prized possession in most American homes during the 1940s-1960s, a time when Mid-Century design often reflected our interests and concerns. After WWII, Americans were increasingly interested in *exotic* cultures(Asia and Indonesia), the American Western, Space Travel, aliens, and *life out there...,* a wide range of animals, plants, and birds, as well as abstract, *organic* shapes and forms.
