This table or bedside lamp is made after an “old” design what you often see in the 30s and 40s. No label or markings present, unfortunately. It has an olive green painted glass base. The bottom of the base is clear.
The wiring and switch were made in the late 50s, early 60s by an Italian company (to identify).
The plug was replaced in the late 60s, early 70s and was made by Vynckier. Vynckier is a Belgian company from Ghent. In the early years it was named Usines Vynckier Frères et Cie (Factories Vynckier Brothers and Co.) They are located in an impressive architectural building next to the Nieuwevaart-channel. Today it is owned by the American giant General Electric.
