I love the challenges I face when researching TV lamps, but I'm getting overwhelmed! Williams Ceramics is indeed a challenge. Certain things would suggest a connection with William Hirsch Manufacturing, who in turn appears to be tied with designer Leland Claes, but none of that can be confirmed. See what I mean?
This long-haired cat from Williams Ceramics is unique among TV lamps, as the Siamese was the usual subject.
