Wired for a standard Australian outlet. The shade on this lamp is different to the usual'We Sell Draught Guinness' that often came with this lamp. My research indicates that only 2500 of these lamps were produced c1962.
I've not seen any other examples of this shade, so I'm not sure how many of these exist. Fully marked with the Carlton Ware script mark on the base. The item "Rare Vintage Carlton Ware Guinness Penguin Lamp & Shade. Carltonware" is in sale since Friday, January 18, 2019.
