All the electric parts are 1950s Italian; socket, plug and switch, so in all probability this lighthouse table lamp was made in Italy. It would not make sense to buy parts far away at that time. Italy was also at that time the lamp country par excellence. 

However, these lighthouses were sold along the European coast in souvenir shops. This one was acquired in Normandy, France. 

Probably for the first time sold in the 1950s, but produced for several years.
