TV Lamps, Page Two

The circus horse was made in white, black or with airbrushed color.

The K196 Antique-Fruit TV lamp is an attractive, elegant, design. This one was never popular, and few were made.

Called the K200 Bird Paradise, it is a beautiful lamp, particularly with with the airbrushed color.

This catalog image is all that is known of the Cathedral TV lamp, as no examples have been found. Richard Gunter remembers the lamp, and was its designer.

Called the K208 Sportsman Panther, this large TV lamp was a big seller. Not present on this example, 22k gold coloration on the decorative circles is a rare variation.

The white glaze is somewhat less common than black.

Kron used a deer figurine made at Midwest Potteries as inspiration for the K209 deer and fawn TV lamp.

The Kron marking is found next to the fixture.

The doe and fawn look particularly nice in black. Also found in white.

The K242 Butterfly and Magnolia TV lamp wasn't a big seller, and is scarce today.

Back view.

Very rare, the K243 Golden Pheasant TV lamp is of similar size and design to the mallard.

Back view of the golden pheasant.

This golden pheasant appears to have retailed for $6.95, almost twice the price of many TV lamps.

This color variation is the least common of the two.

The pheasant was also made with this brown stained finish.

Texans biggest selling TV lamp by far was this K313 Siamese Cat and Kitten, a beautiful design that is still loved by collectors today.

The cats are marked with the Texans stamp on the bottom.

The K559 owl TV lamp was immensely popular, inspite of reports that it scared children!

These predominately white owls made up just a small percentage of the total production.

Back view of the white owl. Pure white owls (with no brown detailing) have also been found.

This bear TV lamp is another late design, and seems to be more popular today than when it was released. A table lamp version was also made.

Another life-like Kron sculpture, the Poodle and Pug TV lamp featured painted toenails and a collar.

Much less common than the white, a black poodle version was also produced.

Here's the back view of the black poodle & Pug.

Very rare, this Early American TV lamp must have been made in extremely small numbers.

Back view. The design is unusual, and is minimally effective as a lamp.

One of the rarest of all Texans TV lamps, these dancers were very prone to breakage.

Back view of the dancers. They were also made in green, blue, and perhaps other colors.

The 3-horse TV lamp was available in off-white, tan (shown here), black and with airbrushed colors. All are highly prized by collectors.

Back view. The 3-horse may have been the last TV lamp design made at Texans.

Black version. As with all but the airbrushed lamps, this one has a semi-gloss finish.

Airbrushed version, probably the finish most desired by collectors.

The Kron marking can be seen on the back of the 3-horse lamp.

Introduced in the '70s, these mushrooms have the usual TV lamp attributes, but were in fact marketed as novelty lamps.

The mushrooms were glazed in black or white with "day-glo" paint applied. The painted areas were subject to wear, as seen on this example.
