Lamps like this one were made in many forms and sizes: palm trees, reeds, flowers, pineapples, exotic plants, leaves and many others.
These lamps are often attributed to the famous Maison Jansen company, but there were many artists in the 1960s and mostly in the 1970s who created these lamps. Some of them are signed or labelled, most are not.
Other designers and companies that created lights like this: Tom Greene, Curtis Jeré, Maison Charles, Lustrerie Deknudt, Hans Kögl and many others.
Maison Jansen or House of Jansen, was a Paris-based interior decoration company founded in 1880 by Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen. It was located at 23, rue de l’Annonciation, Paris. Today the house is the Maison Jansen museum and it also promotes contemporary artists.
Today new palm tree lamps are in production, not only by the German company Hans Kögl but the old ones by Maison Jansen are being copied and look almost exactly the same. But they are made cheaper. They are made in iron and painted with some antique gold paint to let it look old, so beware!
