Many companies with the name Veca exist in Italy. Veca is a common surname in the north of Italy and also on Sicily. But about the lamp factory is no information to be found.

Veca produced many chandeliers and other lamps in this style, all in the 1960s and 1970s. It reminiscence to the FontanaArte and Cristal Art lamps, but they are different. Typical is the use of green and/or blue coloured glass.

Comparable lamps were made by the Italian company Lupi. They were labeled Lupi Cristal Luxor. Lupi made several lamps in the Veca style.
