But she was very nice and we worked it out and she sent it UPS.It arrived today in a ginormous box.filled to the rim with the white peanuts.It was so big I almost fell in.lol.then had dig for the lamp and shade.I am sure my dogs were laughing at me.The lamp was wrapped in loads of bubble wrap and taped up I could almost not unwrap it.Lol.But finally got it all unwraped and put together,So here is the lamp the kind lady sent me.
Under the base in a little lightbulb and it lights the base pink.The radio needs a lightbulb so once i get somebulbs I will take pics.

Here is some history about Mrs Schoop.I found it on yahoo so I hope no one gets mad at me if it's theirs.
Hedi Schoop was born in Switzerland and an accomplished dancer in Germany, married to a well-known composer, Frederick Hollander. In 1933 Schoop and her husband fled Nazi Germany. After settling in Hollywood she began experimenting first in plaster and later in pottery, and soon became one of Califoria's most respected manufacturers of ceramic products.Almost all the pieces produced at Schoop's North Hollywood factory were personally designed and modeled by Hedi. The most popular lines were the figurines of men and women...European and Asian couples in native attire, Hawaiian hula dancers and American debutantes. Besides the human figures Hedi Schoop produced animal figurines, vases, planters, candlesticks, ashtrays, and more...often these articles formed coordinated sets of items.
Business thrived in the 1950s, but a disastrous fire destroyed her factory in 1958. Schoop chose not to rebuild, instead selling some of her molds to other local manufacturers, and doing some design work for The California Cleminsons. Hedi Schoop retired from the pottery business in the early sixtiesI am really happy to have this little set of lamp.And lilly like keeping them safe.So now just need new shades.Does anyone have any schoop?I would love to see them.
