Chalk Hula Lamp. 7.75 inches.
The most famous Hawaiian lamps being mass produced in the 1930’s and 1940’s were hula lamps. These desirable collectors’ items were, without a doubt, originally a premium or give-away. It also appears that they were a prize won at carnivals around this time period. As with all items of Hawaiiana, condition is the most important factor in determining price.
