Vintage large mid-century 'Memlite' desk lamp.

Burnished iron & polished steel

This is the larger of two Memlite desk models available from the 1940's-60's (the other had a smaller shade and narrower arm sections). We recently acquired a small run of 6 from a univeristy lab refurbishment. We have fully polished two, the other four have been left in their original black paint. All can be polished on request.

The polished steel parts have a characterful patina of wear. The lamp articulates at the neck, elbow and base. Each joint is held together with the original nuts, bolts & washers, all of which have been carefully cleaned polished and sealed before re-assembly.

The heavy, burnished cast iron base features a brass on/off switch. Two square section arm parts of equal length meet at the elbow joint featuring the impressed 'MEMLITE' logo. The spun steel shade with cream painted interior is held on a neck joint allowing rotation as well as vertical movement.

This lamp has been rewired with a new aged bronzed finish lamp holder, and 2 metres of black cloth covered braided cable. It will be supplied fully PAT tested with a vintage style black plug and low energy LED bulb*.
