Post lot text
Shirley Temple discovered the present 'Nasturtium' table lamp while filming the October 23, 1960 episode of NBC's Shirley Temple Storybook entitled Little Men. The lamp was used as a prop on the episode and appears on a side table throughout the show behind Shirley and her co-star, Fernando Lamas. Shirley fell in love with the 'Nasturtium' and brought it back with her to her Woodside, California home where she cherished it on her writing desk for more than fifty years.
