1950's Anglepoise inspection lamp with Magnifier.

Unusual twin-lamp 1208 variant.

A rare example of an Anglepoise magnifying lamp designed by George Carwardine for Herbert Terry & Sons,Redditch.Based on the shorter armed (12 inch) industrial 1208 model with riveted elbow joints and weightier base,. this lamp had been languishing in a horologists workshop when we acquired it.

Originaly painted in a silver hammer finish, which had flaked beyond repair it was an easy decision to strip and polish. Once stripped, cleaned and lightly polished an attractive combination of metals have been revealed. A weighty Anglepoise cast iron base (originally specified for the larger, 18 inch armed, 1209 designs), flat steel lower arms,elbow joints and magnifying lense holder,.tubular aluminium upper arms and rounded brass shade cowels and rivets as well as copper washers at the neck joint.

Made from thick glass, the magnifying lense is in perfect condition, it is evenly illuminated by the twin bulbs positioned either side. We have fitted it with SBC candle bulbs, LED replacements are also available.Black Bakelite handles each side allow the position of the lense to be adjusted precisely over the task in hand.

This lamp has been wired up temporarily to illustrate it is in good working order, the purchaser will be able to specify the colour and length of cable preferred before being PAT tested.
