FiR downtube shifters

I run across these downtube shifters labeled FiR. FiR is a well known italian producer of quality rims and VeloBase reports a group of components ("La nuova dimensione") but I cannot find any info about these levers. I'm unwilling to disassemble them without a schematic but the left one has some kind of internal racketing washer and the right one has a barrel of big dimensions for 8-9 speed index shifting. I'm pretty sure that they were not produced by FiR but likely rebranded. Does anybody recognize them or their similarity with other downtube shifters?
Thanks in advance!
