A Minnie Mouse ceramic lamp base created by Evan K. Shaw Pottery in the 1940's. Featuring an adorable depiction of a flirty Minnie, the sticker on the base reads "Walt Disney, Minnie Mouse, Railley Corporation, Cleveland, Ohio." Measuring 5" diameter and 12" tall, the lamp base is in good condition with light wear and crazing from age. Through the 1940s and 1950s, the Evan K. Shaw Pottery company and its sister companies, Metlox and American Pottery, produced a wide range of ceramics. In 1943, they were granted approval as a licensee to produce a range of Disney characters. These companies are no longer in business, and their highly desirable figurines are increasingly rare.
