Other versions: This 1970s maroon glass table lamp was made in some variations. Also made in other colours, at least made in orange and white. Also a round version exists, as you can see below.

This lamp has no label, but in all probability, it is a lamp produced by DORIA. It is definitely a German lamp.

Inside the base are two E14 light bulbs. The switch can change between all the lights on, only the top lamp lit or only the bottom lamps burning. And of course all lights off.

Incamiciato: overlay lattimo glass (= milky looking glass) with a layer of transparent coloured glass. A technique first used on the Venetian island Murano, hence the Italian name.

A 1970s maroon glass table lamp or a very similar one with a different lampshade appears in the 1970 French mystery thriller film Le Passager De La Pluie (Rider on the Rain). Starring Charles Bronson, Marlène Jobert and Annie Cordy. A few other lamps were used as a prop in this movie.
