Often said that it is a lamp made by the German company Hillebrand, but it does not appear in any catalogue, according to Heinz Stahl. Heinz Stahl designed many lamps for Hillebrand but he has never seen this lamp.

Although it is not a Hillebrand lamp, it got all the looks of  it and in all probability it is a German lamp.
