Is This Real Vintage or a 1980's Repop?

It's cool, but almost looks TOO cool, you know? I mean, have you ever seen a boomerang print lamp shade from the 50's or early 60's? I haven't.

It reminds me of this lamp click HERE which was correctly identified as an 80's redo, 50's style.

Seen these come up for auction occasionally, this one identified as "1960's", but the seller may not know themselves.

What do YOU say, my savvy mid century shoppers?

"REAL" 1960's, or a 1980's-ish reissued 50's STYLE lamp?

(I'm not implying the seller is intentionally trying to misrepresent, nor am I implying a "reissued" lamp is "less than", I'm simply curious what my blogger friends think!).
