Vintage Herbert Terry Scumble Anglepoise Lamp


Original classic anglepoise 1227 gold scumble Herbert Terry desk 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, painted in the original gold scumble finish. C1938. 

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!

This Lamp is in very good original condition, a fantastic example of industrial engineering and a timeless piece of lighting, fully rewired & PAT tested (Bulb not included).

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