I haven't found any information regarding Maurice of California but they appear to have produced a fairly substantial volume of products, including ashtrays, cookie jars and TV lamps. Judging from the various styles found on their designs, I'd imagine that the company was active from sometime in the 1950s until the '70s.
I was convinced that this "Swan and Babies" TV lamp was unmarked, but saw one listed on eBay described as bearing a Maurice of California marking. I took another look, and BOOM, there it was! (but very faint)
