    I am a fellow treasure seeker and I found a lamp at a thrift store in Benson, az. The only information that pops up is your white lamp that looks almost exactly alike. But mine has color . Atomic pillow signed jefwallis. Do you happen to have any info you could share? I can’t seem to be able to attach a photo. Tia

      Hi there – I believe the signature is Jo Wallis, which might help you with your research. We don’t have a lot of additional information about it, however it is interesting that yours has color because we always speculated that ours had been painted over. I’m inclined to see if I can scratch some off now! I’d love to see a photo – feel free to email
