Adjustable in every direction, thick chroming and of a high quality. No other marks than “made in Italy” to be found, except for the electric parts, but they are also all Italian, off course.
Another desk lamp here on Vintageinfo has the same “made in Italy” moulded in the black plastic bottom but also “Florence”, written up side down.
The most well known light company from Florence is Targetti Sankey. Some other producers are: Masca, Febo Light, Banci, Patrizia Garganti, AEC Illuminazione and others.
