Deluxe Leg LampDeluxe Leg Lamps are back in stock.

The beautiful 50-inch Deluxe Leg Lamp is a near perfect replica of the leg lamp featured in A Christmas Story.  All of the quirky features are present in this leg lamp including the butt cheek, the chubby thigh and the knobby knee.  It also show cases a fringed gallery shade, a sexy thigh high fishnet stocking, and an elegant stiletto heel. This is our tallest model of leg lamp and the most accurate in style and size to A Christmas Story leg lamp.

We have also recently added a new packing option: the leg wooden crate.  This new crate option ships just the lamp in a wooden crate while shipping the shade in a separate box.  Its a nice upgrade from the cardboard box and an economical alternative to the full size crate.
