The Rite-Lite Manufacturing Company was located in Chicago, Illinois, but I have no other information at this time.
This skillfully crafted TV lamp is similar in style to other bust-style lamps. Others can be found that represent oriental or african characters, and they typically have the light projected up through a hat as in this example. It has a foil label on the base that says Rite-Lite Mfg. Co., Chicago, Ill. Photo courtesy of Ed Barr from Westfield, MA.
