A rare mid 20th Century Anglepoise Model 75 desk lamp with unusual clamp base in grey.
Manufactured by the Redditch-based lighting company, Herbert Terry & Sons Ltd in the late 1960s, this desk lamp is in full working order.
The desk lamp is a Model 75, which has a longer light shade with a rocker switch at the top. The base fork of the lamp, which holds the iconic three spring movement has been cast with ' Made in England by Herbert Terry & Sons Ltd Redditch' into it and 'Anglepoise Trade Mark' on the reverse. The clamping mechanism is also cast and has been painted the same colour as the light.
This Anglepoise lamp is in relatively good condition though there are some scrapes to the paintwork, as you would expect from an item of this age. The lamp has been rewired using vintage style braided three core wire with an inline switch, though has not been PAT tested.
