This model was an Aristocrat with a 9 3/4" diameter and approximately 3" deep tray attached at the base's narrow point/seam. It had the same gold drizzles on white porcelainized base and satin gold cap. This lamp was sold WITHOUT any plantings in the tray, thus the enterprising housewife (the catalog's words, not the author's) could change the plantings to suit the mood or occasion. Marketing was steered towards floral shops. The base always had a "Use No Water" sticker on it, indicating that only artificial greenery should be used. Like the Aristocrat, the 1966 Decorator had a gold-finished cap. This lamp used a 30 watt R-20 reflector bulb.
