Lamps in this “Saturn” style were produced by many companies around the globe. They became popular in the 1920s, 1930s. Saturn lamps were made for many years and some companies produce them today.
The pink salmon marbled glass was very sought after at that period. This typical glass remained popular after World War II until the 1950s.
There is no label present on most lamps from that period, unfortunately. It was not mandatory to mention brands and wattage’s at that time, so most manufacturers did not.
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar System, after Jupiter.
