A long search did not give any result, unfortunately. The text/name on the lampshade and base are also hard to read. Maybe it says B. Europa or almost something like that. Probably the name of the designer. The other signature is probably from the producer. It is written on the inside of the table lamp. Hardly to read, probably in Italian.

The flowers on the table lamp are garden cosmos – Mexican aster (Cosmos bipinnatus), maybe another aster flower or just a fantasy.
