Other versions: This 1950s brass gooseneck desk lamp exists in several colours. Also produced with several different bases, amongst marble ones and other round metal. Also a rectangular and square base exists. Often with a brass gooseneck, also made with a brass rod. Chrome versions were also produced. A complete gold coloured lamp also exists.
A typical 1950s model and colour. Often attributed to Stilux from Milan, but it is probably not. Most lamps from Stilux are labelled and none of them have this base or lampshade.
The electric components are made in the same period. This table lamp could be Italian and it is made in the style of a desk lamp made by Arredoluce, the company of Angello Lelii. The electric components are all Italian. But of course that doesn’t mean anything.
