Found this large lamp this week being stored in a barn. Two part ceramic lamp base. I pulled the old felt off the bottem and found the sig of Lucille Nichol or Nichols. Ring any bells?

Looks to be a hobby piece. At least that's my guess. Here is a pic of one from my collection. 18" tall with a great glaze. Done in the style of a Marquesan Tiki. Mine is not made into a lamp but could easily have been done. Nice find.

That Tiki appeared in multiple forms, and was until recently still available as concrete lawn Tiki:

That signature is interesting, but we might never know if that was the designer of the Tiki, or just the lamp.
