Companies that sold glass lamps like this one are, among others: Lamperti, Targetti, Lightolier, AV Mazzega, Peill + Putzler, Raak Amsterdam

Raak Amsterdam named it Ochtendnevels, “morning dew” in English. They appear in catalogues from 1972 until 1978. The size of this globe is the same as Raak model B-1153 (30 cm / 11.81”).

Best known are the floor lamps the Italian Targetti company produced with this type of glass.

Very difficult to take a decent photo of this type of lamps. Even in the catalogues this lamp is poorly portrayed as you can see. 

Dutch text in the catalogues from 1972 and 1978

Nevels in de morgen
Nevels, die ijler en ijler worden
Tot zij zich oplossen in helder zonlicht
Opaal glas dat steeds steeds transparanter wordt
En uiteindelijk vervloeit in nagenoeg helder glas


Nebulae in the morning
Nebulae, which become rarer and thinner
Until they dissolve in bright sunlight
Opaque glass that is becoming increasingly transparent
And finally it flows into almost clear glass
