Back in the year of1983 there was a comedy of A Christmas Story which featured a piece of leg lamp. That particular type of lamp was such iconic and most recognizable props the comedy has all along its rising popularity back then. At first the comedy show itself was not really a hit until the next decades where it started to be a kind of holiday staple. Therefore the popularity of the iconic leg shaped lamp was also rising.
One surprising fact regarding leg lamp of that comedy show is that it does not exist anymore. Some people will always love to find things associated to certain periods of even specific occasions such as this type of lamp which is highly related and resembles the classic show itself. Unfortunately the likelihood of finding the original version of the iconic piece of Christmas Story’s leg lamp is at the lowest level of possibility.
It is said that there were 3 of leg lamp created in purpose of the production of the comedy. Yet none of them is said to be in an existence today due to the fact that all of them were broken during the production of the comedy itself. Yet, you may try to create a copy of that though.
Moreover about the leg lamp that is often being called as Major Award itself is that it was perpetuated by a man named Ruben Freed as the production designed or the comedy show. He was highly uncertain about the idea and the concept of such lamp so that he created quick sketch to be showed to the actor named Shepherd who approved it soon. Reubed Freed was inspired by the thing on his front room of his mother. It was a piece of a gold-colored silk lampshade. He even stated that it was a classic, big and ugly shape he designed.
Furthermore, despite of being created by Reuben Freed, the idea or design of leg lamp itself was actually inspired by a piece of an old-school style soft drink. Back in the old days when the actual Christmas Story was not even a movie, Jean Shepherd created two volumes of books entitled In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash and also Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories and Other Disasters. Those are the books in which the first idea and description of the leg lamp was given by Jean Shepherd.
