Aluclair: Not much is known about this company. They produced a hole range of items in this style, all made in this burned aluminium; ashtrays, candlesticks and more than 10 different lamps like this one. The Aluclair company was active in the 1960s and 1970s.
It’s possible that the design of these lamps is based on/inspired by a design by Pierre Forsell, who designed lamps in brass in this style in 1965 for the Swedish company Skultuna Bruk, as you can see below. At least there are enough similarities.
