Royal China & Novelty Co.

The only lamps I've seen from the Royal China & Novelty Co. have been of the traditional sleek panther style.  Royal China and Novelty was a Division of Regal China, and had their facility on Archer Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.  Regal manufactured products for Jim beam as well as Lemieux China.

Looking like lamps and figurines by Haeger, Lane & Co., Jacquelin and others, this panther by Royal China & Novelty Co. is a sleek, elegant design. The Royal China lamp-only panthers are identical to the planter/lamp variation, except that they lack the protruding planter and the Royal China marking on the back. All of RC's panthers are 21" long.

Royal China & Novelty TV lamp/planter value:  rarity:
Royal China's panther TV lamp/planter is distinctive in that it is based upon the popular panther design, a protruding planter area added to the top. Unlike the lamp-only version, these are clearly marked in the hollow behind the bulb/fixture.
