Vintage Sage Green Anglepoise Lamp by Herbert Terry & Sons
Pickup currently unavailable
As an engineer the inadequacies of available lighting products were all too clear to Carwardine, prompting him to set about developing a frictionless mechanism that could balance and direct light to any position. Essentially, he wanted to create a lamp that was as versatile as a human arm, having instant flexibility and, more elusively, the ability to hold the chosen position, all at the touch of a finger.
Designed originally as commercial task lighting, however the market for home and office use soon became apparent.
In general good condition for its age, the light holds its positions well and features some chipping and marks to the paint here and there.
The lamp has been rewired with cream nylon twisted flex and has been fitted with a new UK 3 pin plug.
Due to the many adjustable positions of the lamp, it's quite hard to measure but here's a few approximate measurements to get you going, feel free to get in touch should you require any more. At the tallest point with everything standing to attention/upright, the light measures 90cm while the base of the lamp measures 16cm in diameter. Finally, the cone measures 21cm long with a diameter of 14cm.
