Rare Early Herbert Terry Anglepoise 1227 2 Step Black With Perforated Shade
September 13, 2020
Rare Herbert Terry 1227. This iconic lamp from the makers Herbert Terry and Sons has been restored with a focus on retaining its industrial heritage. Known as the model 1227, this is a highly sought after industrial lamp which is the archetypal of anglepoise. This particular version of the 1227 is a very early model that can be identified through its perforated shade and’wrinkled’ paintwork. This model was produced during the crossover period (which was in the year 1938) between the 3-step and 2-step base. Resultantly, this lamp feautres aspects from both models and is a highly sought after version. The 1227 dates back to the mid 20th century and the anglepoise design was originally created by George Carwardine, an engineer with a specialist background in vehicle suspension systems. As part of the restoration process for this lamp, it was necessary to have a complete electrical upgrade. This has been done using a braided fabric 3-core flex and a British 3-pin plug fitted with a 3-amp fuse. The lamp also comes complete with a low energy LED bulb. This lamp has been fully tested by a qualified electrician. Please note that this lamp does have a repair to the fork block that has been captured in the photos. This repair includes bracing to the fork block on both sides due to damage to one of the forks. The repair on bracing the forks is quality engineering that does not deter from the aesthetic or structural integrity. Consequently, it can be argued that the repair adds to the overall charm of this scarce industrial lamp. Please enquire for quotes to elsewhere. Feel free to ask any questions.
