This lamp is in the 1950s, 1960s Scandinavian Modern style, but the socket was made in the 1970s. Probably it was made for a long time. Remnants of a small label are present, but illegible. The switch was replaced sometime in the 90s. The plug and wire are all 1970s and produced by VLM Components. Do you have an idea? Please use the contact form and make this website more complete.
