The label is present on all 3 lamps, unfortunately it is not readable anymore. Just a question of time to figure it out…

In this configuration they are used in a bathroom. They are IP54; dust proof and splash proof, ideal for a humid environment. These lamps originate from a bathroom built in the late 1970s where they were used as wall lamps. But they might as well serve as a flush mount.
