Other versions: This 1960s white globes floor lamp was probably made in several colours. Also more or less globes is possible. Not to mention other models such as table lamps and wall lamps.

This floor lamp has all the looks of a street light or garden lamp, but I don’t think it was meant for that. The electric parts are all replaced, so it does not give any clue. To identify, never saw another before.
