Pheasant TV Lamps

I'm not sure why, but there's a great number of pheasant TV lamps. They're certainly not a typical mid-century theme, but I suspect they had a certain rural, outdoor-life appeal. Many of them are quite attractive, as the subject was a natural for colorful airbrushed glazes.

Kron Pheasant value:  rarity:
This Texans Incorporated Golden Pheasant TV Lamp is spectacular!  Known for some big lamps, this one is a giant at 15" high and over 13" wide.  It was made with two pieces that were fused together during firing, as was Kron's Mallard.  Extremely rare.  Photos courtesy of K.C.

Cockatoo value:  rarity:
I only recently found this Pheasant TV lamp to be manufactured by Maddux of California. The diversity of styles exhibited by Maddux often makes identification difficult!
Rosemeade Pheasant value:  rarity:
Pheasants were a popular subject for Rosemeade, appearing as figurines, salt & pepper shakers as well as on ashtrays. This pheasant is certainly one of the most prized Rosemeade TV lamps, easily bringing $500 or more. Even more rare, it was also made in solid colors on a special order basis.

This beautifully sculpted pheasant from Cal-Style is one of the few TV lamps I've seen that can definitely be attributed to the California maker. Photos courtesy of Ron from Caldwell, Idaho.
