Retro Lighting: Norman Rockwell’s Famous Covers

Retro Staff |  Comments

Norman Rockwell Self Portrait LampOne of America’s most prolific artists, Norman Rockwell produced more than 4,000 paintings and illustrations. For 51 years he illustrated the Boy Scouts’ calendar, and also worked on classic books like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

Rockwell’s most recognizable works, though, were his covers for The Saturday Evening Post. Three of America’s favorites are showcased on modern-style table and desk lamps.

Made in the USA, these lamps feature a 9″ high shade and brushed nickel base. Standing at 21″ high, they’re perfect for the office, den or living room and can be used to bring a room together or as a focal point. An on/off pull chain adds to the retro charm.

A truly unique way to display Americana, the shades feature Rockwell’s entire illustrations wrapped around the light, adding depth.
