Vintage Herbert Terry Anglepoise Lamp


A superb Vintage Herbert Terry Anglepoise Lamp. This Instantly recognisable Anglepoise desk lamp was originally inspired by the anatomy of the human arm. Made from Aluminium with a steel base where the “Herbert Terry” makers mark is stamped. C1935

The first lamp marketed to the general public was designed in 1935, the 1227 lamp. This lamp really came to prominence when WWII broke out. The breakout of war was terrifying, people were worried about themselves & their loved ones and knowing that the possibility of night air raids was high, Herbert Terry & Sons cleverly marketed the 1227 lamp as the “ideal blackout lamp” — perfect for directing light to where it was needed without causing it to leak through any gaps in window coverings!


These lamps are still used to this day, and would make a great addition to any home, office or shop display. A fantastic example of industrial engineering and a timeless piece of lighting. (PAT tested, bulb not included)

Dimensions: H: 99cm D: 15cm W: 41cm
