Founded in the late '40s by Carlos Velasco, this Tucson, Arizona company produced lamps and other novelty items with cholla wood (from cactus) as the primary component. Western motifs were predominant, often conestoga wagons. More information on this company is detailed in my blog page, Manufacturer Profile: Cactus Craft.
This conestoga wagon is classic Cactus Craft, with a western sunset on one side and an Indian Chief and frontiersman on the other. Photos courtesy of eBay seller, pittles39.

A personal favorite, this beauty from Cactus Craft features two iconic monuments that might be visited on a trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota, Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower. Photos courtesy of eBay seller, workstoohrd.
