Vintage Yellow Herbert Terry & Sons Anglepoise Lamp Model No. 1227
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, with the usual wear including marks, chipping, scratching and some faded parts to the paint, along with some light tarnish to the chrome work (all as photographed).
Featuring a beautiful vibrant yellow colour that you don't often come across, making this particular lamp all the more desirable. We believe this colour is original as there is no signs of it being re-sprayed, however we are currently in conversation with Anglepoise who are looking into confirming this for us.
The lamp has been fully rewired with approximately 169cm of 3 core twisted cream nylon flex and has been fitted with a new chrome lamp holder (standard B22 bulb) and 3 pin UK plug.
Due to the many adjustable positions of the lamp, it's quite a tricky one 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 92cm while the base of the lamp measures 15cm square. Finally, the cone measures 16cm long with a diameter of 14.5cm.
