This conical tripod rocket floor lamp has no label or whatsoever, as with almost all those foor lamps, unfortunately. A peculiar and striking switch in teak wood on top of the lampshade.
The lampshade is made in celluloid covered with braided textile in a burlap sack style, which was very popular at the time. The combination of fabric and celluloid for the conical tube is often seen by French lamps of that period. Which doesn’t mean it’s a French lamp, of course.
