For all you UFO space ship conspiracy fans, here's the perfect lamp to stare at while you ponder the possibilities.
This space ship table top night light lamp is in excellent working condition. All lights work (see photos below). The light bulbs are the same kind that you'd use on a string of Christmas tree lights. The lights are currently in the colors of red, blue, green, and orange, but you can use any colors that you desire. When the lights warm up, they blink and appear to change colors giving the appearance of the saucer spinning. Please see below for the condition of the top of the saucer.
The space ship has landed and is sitting on the top of the moon. A little alien space man is standing under the ship. The alien man stands 2 inches tall.
The saucer measures 8.5 inches across
The bottom, where the base sits on a table measures 7 inches across
The total height is about 11.5 inches
If totally round, the lamp would be about the size of a basketball.
I believe it's made of ceramic, but I'm not absolutely sure. I purchased the lamp at an estate sale a couple years ago and have held on to it constantly researching it on google for a comparable unit, but in those 2 plus years I've never seen anything close to this. There are no markings to help identify an age, but if I had to guess I'd say probably 1960s (mainly due to the type of cord).
As you can see in one of my photos below, the very top piece is broken off. The piece is in the small baggie that you see. It was a clean break, so a dab of super glue will re-attach it. I was going to glue it back on, but I didn't want it to appear that I was trying to hide the break, so I'll leave it for the new owner to re-attach it. There's are two small spots that can be seen in a picture below. I don't know if that is a missing spot of paint or if something was dropped on it. Other than that, it may be a little dusty, but it's in very good condition.
EXPLANATION OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Google will not include items in their search pages unless a shipping charge is stated or unless calculated shipping is offered. It's easy to quote a standard shipping price on items weighing less than a pound (1 to 15 ounces) because the per ounce costs are the same regardless of ship-to location from coast to coast. When the weight gets to a pound or more, shipping charges are based on zip code.
Unfortunately, the lamp will not fit in to any of the postal flat rate boxes. It will have to be mailed by standard Priority Mail. Also unfortunately, this lamp weights just over 5 pounds. Calculated shipping is often quoted incorrectly on the postal website, so I choose to quote a shipping charge as if the package is being sent to the east coast and then refund an appropriate amount to cover overpayment of shipping charges. The closer to Arizona that the item is shipping to, the lesser the charge will be. If that is uncomfortable for you, feel free to send me your zip code and I can quote you an accurate shipping cost.
The shipping charge will be $15.95, which is actually about half of what the actual shipping charge is. I just don't have the heart to charge over $30 to mail a package so I split the cost with the buyer.
Sorry, no International shipping on this item.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
