Nothing to be found about this lamp. Seen it before years ago. In almost new state, probably never used. A typical 1950s, 1960s lamp. Many lamps in this style were produced in France and Italy with this tulip glass, made by Maison Jansen, Jean Perzel and several others. Anyway, this one is not. Maybe it is Italian.
