We’re having a bit of a run on anglepoise lamps at the moment! Although this lot took me some time to collect, so I’m not sure we’ll have any others for sale anytime soon. This is a Swedish version, produced by Ledu, and seems to be fairly unusual. I’ve actually sold this exact design before, but if you google Ledu anglepoise lamps you’ll see that the majority of their designs have a clamp that secures to a table – there aren’t too many with bases attached, and even fewer with this very cool teardrop-shaped base. Obviously there’s some wear to the lamp – the base has a few scratches, the metal springs are showing their age (although still seem to work just fine), and the original on/off switch that would have sat at the back of the hood has been replaced by a switch on the cord, but I think there wears’s commensurate with the age of the lamp, which I’d guess to be in the region of 60 years.
A very attractive and very cool anglepoise that you’re not likely to see again anytime soon.
Note: The lamp is quite a bit greyer in colour than it appears in the photos.
Dimensions: 85cm tall (when fully extended); Base – 20cm long x 15cm wide
