You have prompted me to examine mine and from the base rim it also appears to be 3 layers !  8)

Oh, was just plodding through Miller's Collecting The 1960s and there's a photograph of your lamp in yellow (yours looks lime green on my monitor).

It's Italian, unknown manufacturer, but is apparently borrows liberally from a design by Italian architect Tobia Scarpa for Flos. Estimate: £120-150.

Here's something I bought today for £2.50, sadly, I chipped it on the way home.

I'm sure this colour and casing is also Italian as I've seen it on large Italian shaped Bottle vases (unidentified).

My lamp has three casings, white, mustard and clear.
