Beautiful Reglor Chalkware Lamp

Can you believe we passed this up the first time we saw it?  Well, we weren't sure what it was--how old or who the maker was, but it was stunning.  We since found out it is a Reglor (of California) lamp, one of those wonderful mid century American manufacturers no longer in existence.  Anyway... it went from the front of the store, to the back of the store in a period of a 2-3 weeks.  I guess we are meant to have it since no one else picked it up.  Price?  $25!  The lamp with shade is 37", made of  chalkware and HEAVY!!  I have yet to weigh it, but I'm going to guess it's no less than 20 lbs.  I bought the shade separately for $1.99.  This particular lamp is named 'contemplation' which is carved in the base along with the manufacturer's name.

    2. It's currently on craigslist.

      I notice that my figure is in more of a sitting position and yours is in better condition, but other than that, they are strangely similar.

    3. Thanks for the link! It's neat to see other Reglor lamps--these big ones aren't as easy to find. Mine has "contemplation" in front of "Reglor". Yours is missing paint there--can you detect any lettering?
