This rare Tiffany-style stained glass lamp of Sleeping Beauty Castle with the "Fantasy in the Sky" fireworks show overhead was available only during Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration in 2005 and has been in its box all these years! I've only opened it to inspect the piece and photograph it.
This wonderfully detailed piece has its own internal lighting coming from inside the castle, which offers an inviting amber glow. If you look through the main gates of the castle (front or back) with the castle lights on, there's glass of varying thickness used to give the impression of additional structure inside (very cleverly and effectively done).
The lamp is 22.5 tall and fairly hefty. It's in its original box with all original items, including the certificate of authenticity stating that it's from a limited edition of 1500.The lighting can be set to the following four combinations using a single knob in the back: 1 Lamp on, castle lights off 2 Lamp on, castle lights on 3 Lamp off, castle lights off 4 Lamp off, castle lights on I've photographed the piece in all four scenarios. In some of the photos, the stained glass dome or the flags that top it are tilted off-center. That's because Tiffany-style stained glass lamps have heavy domes that hang differently as you rotate them. When you set up the lamp, if either the dome or topper flags are tilting slightly to one side, just rotate them until they're straight. This is not an issue with the piece.
This piece has never been displayed and comes from my clean, smoke-free, pet-free home. There are a lot of small flags on the piece that seem potentially breakable, so be VERY careful when unpacking it. I spent probably 20 minutes unboxing it because I was worried about damaging it and it turned out to be a smart choice. There was a slight oily feel to the glass dome which I'm assuming was deliberately added to keep the plastic wrapper from sticking to the stained glass.It wipes away easily with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel and does not affect the appearance or operation of the lamp. I was glad that Disney did this because some of my other Disney collectibles that I hadn't opened from 15 years ago were actually damaged by the plastic wrapper sticking to them and damaging the paint.
Not so with this piece. There are very few of them left out there and even fewer that are brand new and in mint condition, like this one.
