Acquired in Belgium but it has a B22-fitting so presumably it was imported some years ago. In Belgium the E27 Edison socket was and is the standard.
The switch is built-in the socket and it is made in France. Only a label “max 100 watt” is present and remnants of another label on the bottom, as you can see below.
