This table lamp has everything to be an Italian lamp, probably from Murano. The glass is mouth blown in the incamiciato technique from the Venetian Island, much used in the lights of Venini, Vistosi, Leucos, Barovier, Seguso and many others.
The electric parts are as always made by the Italian VLM company. The switch is produced in the early 1960s. There are remnants of a label on the base, probably removed when purchased. Also there is a sticker on the bottom with the number 000230 on it.
Incamiciato: overlay lattimo glass (= milky looking glass) with a layer of transparent coloured glass.
