Product Description

A rare portable inspection light…

Dating to the mid 20th century, circa 1950s, this is a rare portable anglepoise light by the famous Herbert Terry & Sons Ltd of Redditch, UK. Having been in a ‘watch makers’ studio for decades, this piece is offered in perfect working order

Made in aluminium with a cast iron and metal base, the light has a desirable industrial look and feel about it. The light is portable, sat on four wheels and relatively light weight. The light can rotate on its axis (at half way down the lamp) and can also articulate up and down. The surface patina is just wonderful, with a splattering of surface scars and scuffs, some paint chipping and some rusty areas. There is ample flex (a good 2 metres plus), therefore this can be moved to that ideal area in your home or workspace…

There is a small switch on the aluminium Silver hood, therefore this can be switched on and off both here and at the plug (which is a standard 240v plug). Although we are offering this piece in perfect working order, we would recommend a PAT test to the new owner). The finishing touch is the makers mark on the mid section of the light reading “Anglepoise” Herbert Terry & Sons Ltd, Redditch, Worcs, England

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars across the piece along with some paint chipping. Some areas are a little dirty and tatty and there is some rusting in areas too. We simply feel this adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A stunning and rare piece both functional and decorative

Please note : This item will be delivered in two halves. We will remove a small screw from the middle section and remove the lamp itself from the stand. One will simply need to re-screw this back in
