Eichhof Werke was founded by Eugen Eichhoff in 1919. In 1931 the company started as a specialist in electrical components and systems. In the following years, Eichhof Werke became prominent in the production of paper-winding capacitors and EMC filters.
Eichhof Werke produced lights for a short period somewhere in the late 1970s and 1980s. This uplight spot is one of those examples. Most of the lamps Eichhof Werke produced during that time were telescopic table/desk/bedside lamps. The company still exists.
Often sold as a light from the 1970s, but the switch used on this lamp is made by the Italian VLM company from Buccinasco, near Milan in Italy in the 1980s. More information about VLM, a part of the Relco company, can be found here on Vintageinfo.
