A ceramic lamp base inspired by the 1944 Disney Studios film The Three Caballeros. Featuring the ever casual and cool Jose Carioca, the lamp was produced by Evan K. Shaw Pottery in the 1940's. Measuring 5” in diameter and 10.75” tall, the lamp base is in good condition with crazing and other visible wear from age. Through the 1940s and 1950s, the Evan K. Shaw Pottery company and its sister companies, Metlox and American Pottery, produced a wide range of ceramics. In 1943, they were granted approval as a licensee to produce a range of Disney characters. These companies are no longer in business, and their highly desirable figurines are increasingly rare.
