leg lampYes, that is the title of this Ebay auction from cousinjethro. Where the leg lamp from A Christmas Story was “Indescribably beautiful”, this one not so much.

The seller says:

This is possibly the world’s ugliest leg. Originally produced to be used on the Christmas Story Leg Lamps but the artist made a mess of it. We were only able to stop production after 300 had already been made. What a disaster! To our surprise, people who saw the leg liked it. I have heard many uses for the leg from table legs to a mail box stand. I enjoy mine just sitting in a corner of the room; we have a lot of fun with it. If this leg was on a person, that person would be approximately 5″6″ tall.

The “Ugly Leg” is 33″ Tall and approximately 11″ across the top. The foot is made for a size 8 ladies shoe. It has an opening in the top and a hole in the bottom of the foot in case you want to stand it up in a pin, bolt or whatever. It is constructed from flesh tone fiberglass much like a department store manikin. The weight of the “Ugly Leg” is approximately 4 pounds.

Well, I’m not one for getting down on fat people. Unless I’ve had like a six pack, mind you. So I’ll just say that yes, that is an ugly lady leg. Putting a shade on it won’t help. I’ve seen worse though. Having said that, the quality of this sculpt is impressive.

It has just the right amount of cellulite. Not too much, nor too little. The lack of varicose veins is a nice touch. I also appreciate the lack of any identifying marks, like a butterfly tattoo or hairy mole. Just the hint of a cankle. SOLD. I’ll take two for an end table I am making. They remind me of a young Hillary Clinton.
