We know thi is Italian, form itself, it also retains a very small partial label, that we know said "Made in Italy", but beyond that we haven't been able to pin it down. Any help will be greatly appreciated. It was purchased here in U.S. about 15 years ago by us.
Thank You
Jack

'Made In Italy', rather than 'Made In Murano', generally refers to glass made in the Empoli region - but it's definitely one of the better Empoli lamps I've seen, design-wise.

Thank you Nic, we have thought so as well. The label, what is left, is blue and white and round, there is really only a small "Mad" left. We have seen a full label like this several times, and it usually is Made in Italy.

Aye, there's a near-identical one for Sweden, using the same layout.

Not managed to pin down the importer yet, but they seem to have been active on both sides of the Atlantic.

That will make it even more frustrating. Though the lamp does have a somewhat Scandinavian simplicity quality to it.

A lot of Empoli lamps do get erroneously lumped in with Swedish and Danish design (usually Holmegaard, Alsterfors or Elme).
