Beauceware

Beauceware was a Canadian manufacturer of high-quality ceramics based in Beauce, Quebec. They were founded in 1949 and remained in production until 1989. Many thanks to Patricia Congdon of Mississauga, Ontario for the information!

This horse poses in front of a fiberglass "shade", a common fixture on TV lamps, which helps to diffuse the light. This one was manufactured by Beauceware in 1952. Found in various colors, including blue.

Quite common, variations of this TV lamp depict a panther, a horse or a profile "cameo". This Beauceware lamp was made in 1953.

Given its high quality, I always suspected that this prancing horse TV lamp was done by one of the major manufacturers, and recently discovered it to be from Beauceware. While quite early for production for a TV lamp, it presumably dates from 1950.
