The United States led in the production of lady head lamps due to import restrictions during World War II. Some firms making lady head lamps included Hedi Schoop, Betty Lou Nichols, Ceramic Arts Studio, Royal Copley, Florence Ceramics, Kaye of Hollywood, Cleminsons of California, Debby Kaspari, Hermione, Kathi Urbach, Dorothy Kindell, Roseville, Van Briggle, just to name a few. When import restrictions were lifted in the 1950’s, overseas manufacturers, mainly from Japan, started to dominate the market.

Many lady head vases were adorned with hats, bows or other hair accessories. Some of the most sought after lady head vases are those of celebrities, with Jacqueline Kennedy being the most sought after lady head vase.
