This table lamp is in all probability produced in the nineties in China. No maker is present on the labels, as you can see below. Only that it uses a MR 11 light bulb, today it is a G5 bulb. MR 11 bulbs are unsuitable and far too large.  Labeled: GG Type G658.

Aircraft lamps exist as long as there are planes. The most desired are the art deco airplane lamps (1920-1939). You can find many beautiful examples online.  

It is possible that this airplane table lamp was sold by IKEA or Massive from Belgium, but I could not find any proof for it.
