Lamps in this style were for the first time designed before World War II. For instance, Gino Sarfatti designed 6 up-lighters between 1938 and 1952.

Many of these type of up-light chandeliers were produced in Italy, France and Germany in the 1950s.

An American dealer online says it is a French lamp, but without any proof or brand name, unfortunately. Maybe he bought it in France…
