The Stilfer SNC company no longer exists. It was at least active in the 1970s and early 1980s. They produced bobblehead table lamps, many other figurines, dolls and robots lamps. Except for some other children bedroom table lamps, nothing to be found about the brand. Many other Stilfer companies exist in Italy, but they have nothing to do with these lamps.


All the electric parts were produced in the early 1970s by VLM Components from Buccinasco in Italy. The switch is model 450 designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1968.
