British industrial lamps produced under the 'Walligraph' brand name in Eltham, London by Walter Grafton & Sons from the 1930's-60's. These wall mounted 'RADIALITE" lamps were beloved of engineers and draughtsmen, the scissor mechanism gives enormous reach and can be folded away after use.
The earlier models, of which these are examples, where produced from steel with an anodised copper finish which aids the lamps smooth scissor action as well as preventing corrosion of the moving parts. These lamps show a degree of patination to the metal where the paint has worn revealing the attractive copper finish beneath and the cast iron of the wall mounts.
