This 1950s four-legged bedside table lamp or even children’s room bedside table lamp – because it’s not glass but plastic – was acquired in France some years ago. It’s got a typical 1950s French switch and plug and it’s got a B22 socket. At that time the standard socket in France. Many of those lamps were also made in Italy. Gilardi & Barzaghi made some table lamps in this style, as many other companies did.
This lamp has 4 brass legs, most of the time it is a tripod. It is more or less made in the form of a candlestick light, including the handle.
The plug is probably replaced, it is a 1960s/1970s plug.
PVC or Polyvinyl chloride is a synthetic plastic polymer.
