Favor-Ware was a manufacturer of plaster products located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They appear to have been tied to, and made the same products as, Miller Studio in the U.S.
Ballerina TV lamps are not uncommon, but seldom as nice as this example from Favor-Ware. Photos courtesy of Sherry Cooper from Canada.
|Chalkware items often show their age, but this ballerina TV lamp is "new-old stock"...having just emerged from storage, in its original box, since the '60s! Ever seen the fiberglass shade on a TV lamp look this white?|
|Here she is in all her glory! I start getting emotional when I see one of these lit-up...snif, snif...|
|This is another new-old-stock Favor-Ware ballerina, this time in white. Photos courtesy of Sherry Cooper from Canada.|
|The paint on these lamps is perfect!|
|As with the pink one, the cord is still in its original, protective wrap.|
