This crane bird table lamp is always attributed to the Valenti company from Spain. As always, I send them an email for a confirmation. Of course in English and Spanish. I tried it 6 times in 7 months. I begged. They never answer. So beware…
The Spanish Valentí company was founded in 1789. It is not to be confused with the company of the same name from Italy, famous for the Hebi lamps designed by Isao Hosoe, today named SP Light and Design.
The Valentí family started at first with silversmith workshop in Barcelona. In 1925 Fernando Valentí Clúa, founder of the current Valentí, was born.
The company produces furniture, bedrooms, and lighting. I presume they are still in business, at least the website is online.
