Often said that it is a lamp made by Herda, The Netherlands, but the logo HP on the label says otherwise, as you can see below. Why many people think it is a lamp from Herda is unclear. Possibly copycats.
Unfortunately there is nothing to be found about this HP company. Probably it is long gone and forgotten. Also, not many lamps to be found on the internet. A hexagonal ceiling lamp or wall lamp sometimes appears and other versions of this half round one. Several other wall lamps and flush mounts can also be found. Probably the HP Leuchten company only produced wall lamps and flush mounts.
