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.
The shipping charge will be $9.95, 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.
Shipping is from Nevada.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and zip code. This year the postal service went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This latest increase has added an additional .96 cents to up to $2.83 on packages, depending on their destination. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in several years, but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not promote or show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host does not have the ability to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with any of that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
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.
