Today I'm feeling a bit fun, so I'll highlight my Vintage 50's Siamese Cats, TV lamp.
TV lamps were all the rage in the 50's with the invention of TV sets. They came in huge cabinets and people would put these ceramic lights on them for some light without hurting the viewing of their TV's.

I think it has a 20 watt bulb or something and it glows behind the cats so you can still see, but not be blinded.

They came in all types of animals and objects. They're a bit gaudy but I still like it.

You definitely don't see them every day so it's a nice piece for your house.
It's not really gear, but it is vintage and just something fun I had around the house that I thought you'd get a kick out of...


  1. I had nostalga attack seeing this -- the cats really are cool.

  2. I have a set of Claes Siamese cats with blue eyes. My husband wont let me replace the dead light bulb, he says the eyes freak him out. It's the only thing of my Grandma's that I wanted when she passed. I remember it fondly on her headboard shelf, so yes, ah, nostalgia.
