The same lamp in Marcel Rochas studio, decorated by Jean-Michel FRANK in 1930. See pictures below.
Please note that there are obviously several editions of this lamp including more recent ones...
Sometimes with square section tubes and stepped base. On this lamp, tubes are round section. The lower part is without stepped base.
This is EXACTLY the 1930 version we can see in JM FRANK decor for Marcel Rochas. A rare and authentic piece.
