Manufacturer: To be appraised. Probably an Italian company because of all the electric parts are made in the mid 1960s in Italy. The socket and plug are made by the famous VLM Components factory from Buccinasco, a small village near Milan.
The switch is made by Acciarri, another Italian company. Acciarri is an Italian family name, mostly found on the east coast of the country. Nothing to be found about this company, it must be long gone. Acciarri also produced switches and other electric parts for Reggiani, the famous Italian lightning company. Also Massive from Belgium used Acciarri parts, and many other companies.
