In 1934 this four spring 1208/9 Anglepoise was released. It was very popular but was a little industrial for the domestic market so Carwardine developed a more elegant simpler version for the home: the 1227.George Carwardine developed a work-lamp based on the anatomy of the human arm, which he envisioned as being used by his engineers. However he realised that it would also be useful in the home, being more adaptable than your average industrial lamp. He applied for the patent for the ‘Equipoise’ lamp but the Trade Marks Registry at the Patent Office rejected this as equipoise was an existing word, and so the Anglepoise was born. These true British design classics are becoming very desirable and are going up in value all the time. New switched cord grip lamp holder and Vintage Style 3 Core twisted Braided flex has been added along with new rubber grommets. All lamps for use in the UK are PAT tested prior to dispatch.
