A vintage industrial Allen LW U-V A409 bench lamp. The lamp, manufactured by PW Allen & Co of Liverpool Road, London, uses two miniature 230mm (9in) flourescent tubes with a special aluminium reflector and a Wood's filter. A 'starter' button is provided to initiate the lamp discharge.
The lamp is in working condition, though has not been rewired or PAT tested. Originally designed for the gemological industry this lamp is fairly rare and an interesting design. The bench lamp would look great in any vintage industrial styled room.
