Richard Ginori.
The house of Ginori was established in 1735 by the Marchese Carlo Ginori, (1702-1757), with Ginori’s first porcelain manufactory at Doccia near Florence. Ginori porcelain was continued without a break by his three sons, who were particularly noted for the development of a new white porcelain.

The company remained in the hands of the Ginori heirs until 1896 when it was incorporated into the Richard of Milan company, as Richard-Ginori.  The Richard-Ginori company which produces most of today's high quality Italian porcelain, has its own purpose built museum to display its beautiful collection of Doccia / Richard-Ginori porcelain.  This lamp is also included in its museum  collection.  The Ginori company finally closed in 2013.

A second example of this lamp is available, should a pair be required.
