baby lamp | Petitcollin, France

Petitcollin was founded in 1860.  Nicolas Petitcollin, the company's founder, manufactured horn combs in Étain, Meuse, France.  The company moved to Paris and in in 1898, began to use celluloid for its various products. It is widely thought that Petitcollin started its manufacture of toys in 1901 and that of its dolls in 1907.  In the mid twentieth century, Petitcollin began to specialize in manufacturing objects made from polyester resin and in 1961 it became the first French manufacturer of polyester resin helmets.

In 1995, Vilac acquired the company, which became known as SARL Jouets Petitcollin.  The factory has been open to the public since 1998 and it serves as the only operational doll factory in France.  The company was given the Label Entreprise du partimoine vivant (Living Heritage Company label) by the French government in 2007.

Petitcollin may be famous for its dolls, but it is also responsible for this doll-like, baby-shaped lamp.  It was fabricated in pink, orange, blue, green, and flesh colors.  The lamp dates from the early 2000s.  The lamp measures approximately 14-1/2” inches tall from head to toe and takes a halogen bulb.  At one point it was available from many retail outlets in the $90-100 range, but alas no longer seems to be.  Any way you look it it, the lamp is absolutely creepy, from the adjustable limbs, to the fact that a monochrome and strangely colored baby lights up, to the unfortunate location of the cord. I wish I had one.

Here is detail from a blue example from eBay that didn’t sell.
