1932 Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Campaign Figural Lamp For Sale
Rare and wonderful, 1932 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Campaign Bronzed Figural Lamp with original cased glass shade!!!
This outstanding, FDR Campaign Lamp measures approx. 15 1/4” tall overall and 7" by 3" at the base. The Lamp is titled "The Man of the Hour" and features a full figure of Franklin D. Roosevelt grasping a Ship's Wheel and apparently piloting the "Ship of State". The Ship's Wheel is surmounted by a mount for a cased glass, globe shaped shade and the Lamp retains what appears to be its original shade - a wonderful spatter glass, cased globe with multi-color outer surface and milk glass cased inner surface.
This is actually the original 1932 FDR Presidential Campaign Piece which was later modified (in 1933) to contain an Anti-Prohibition, mechanical face clock which was issued in support of the passage of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which repealed the 18th Amendment that prohibited the sale of alcoholic beverages in the United States. The Clock's design patent was filed on October 21, 1933 and the patent was issued on December 5th, 1933 - amazingly the same day that the 21st Amendment was formally ratified repealing Prohibition!!! This Lamp, however pre-dates the Clock is MUCH rarer!!
This wonderful, FDR Presidential Campaign Figural Lamp is made of a heavy, cast white metal with a beautiful, bronzed finish. It is in excellent condition and in excellent, working order. The electric cord appears replaced but is well preserved and the Lamp lights beautifully giving a rich and warm glow.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
