Polished Steel & Black painted 1209 Anglepoise
A wonderful 1209 Anglepoise lamp manufactured by Herbert Terry & Sons, Redditch, England. This example from the mid-1950s, with a cast base that is slightly larger than normal for this age.
Initially developed by George Carwardine as the ‘Equipoise’, earlier iterations of this light were sold under his own company ‘Cardine Accessories Ltd, Bath’ between 1928-30. Carwadine then went into collaboration with Herbert Terry & Sons, Redditch, which in turn lead to the development of the iconic Anglepoise lamp.
