Rightly a true classic, the Anglepoise 1227 lamp designed by George Carwardine. This version was manufactured from 1938 to 1968 by Herbert Terry & Sons (Anglepoise).


The lamp is extremely manoeuvrable and makes the perfect desk lamp. This is stylish in design and very stable due to the base in cast iron. The desk lamp has a rotary switch at the top of the shade and is equipped with a bakelite plug. Above the base is inscribed 'Made in England by Herbert Terry & Sons Ltd Redditch' and on the back 'The Anglepoise Pat. in UK and abroad'. This ensures that this is an original copy. Considering its age, the lamp is in (very) beautiful condition.


George Carwardine (1887-1947) was a car designer and was working as a freelance design consultant when he invented the Anglepoise lamp. He specialized in suspension systems and applied for a patent on July 4, 1932 for a design of a lamp with a mechanism of joints and_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-1586bad5. This allowed the lamp to be moved in a wide range of positions without being clamped.

He originally manufactured the lamp himself in the workshops of his own company (Cardine Accessories in Bath) but soon the demand became so great that he needed a partner. On February 22, 1934 he concluded a license agreement withHerbert Terry and Sons(Redditch) who from then on took on production and marketing.
