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.
With visible wear commensurate with age and use and as photographed. Some of the parts to this particular lamp are not original but make it functional still.
Featuring a beautiful yellow colour (named Gold in their original catalogue) that you don't often come across, making this particular lamp all the more desirable.
The lamp has been fully rewired with approximately 175cm 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.
