Rare 1940'S Bakelite Shade Anglepoise Desk Lamp In Repaired Condition
Rare 1940's Bakelite Shade Anglepoise desk lamp in repaired condition.
This Herbert Terry Anglepoise desk lamp - Model 1227 with rare brown bakelite shade were produced in limited numbers after WWII. These lamps do not come to the market often and are highly sought after.Immediately after World War II there was a shortage of aluminium so the english company, Herbert Terry & Sons for a very short period of time used bakelite which could be easily moulded into the required shape,This was soon abandoned as they were found to be brittle and often cracked or shattered in transit, consequently, very few of these 1940's 1227 model Anglepoise Lamps with their bakelite shade have survived. Crabtree bakelite bulbholder and new inline switch.
Please study the repair to the shade.
