This one was a custom piece for my friend Audrey's mother. When I asked her to tell me about her, she said that she had been in child care for over 10 years, and also very involved with her church's Sunday School program. I recovered the 4-panel shade with this (s)cool retro fabric and a coordinating beaded trim- and is all about Dick and Jane at the Fair- complete with ice cream cones, penants, a ferris wheel and helicopter rides.
The books are titled: "The Good Mother," "Green Eggs and Ham," "The Cat in the Hat," "Joseph's Coat of Many Colors," and "Positive Classroom Discipline." The body of the lamp is a mismatched stack of cups and saucers, with another on the lower level.
Look at the stand alone cup and saucer..inside of that cup is a 'Barrel o' Monkeys' game and a silly putty egg. Grandma can play these games with the kids! The only thing loose on this lamp is the barrel o monkeys....everything else is secured together in place...all askewed and kitty-whompus (or should I say 'KIDDIE-whompus!?!). Line switch; titled, signed and dated.
Audrey gave this to her mom for Christmas this year-- she went straight over to the entertainment center and shoved everything off the top to give it a new home! I also understand that unless you are at least 40 years old, you can't play with the silly putty or the monkeys.
