"Bestlite" BL1 Desk Lamp
An original "Bestlite" desk lamp designed by Robert Dudley in the early 20th Century. It has a fully adjustable chrome arm and is set on a heavy round base. The shade is also adjustable and swivels on a ball joint at the end of the arm. The base and shade are both painted black. It is stamped "Bestlite" and also marked "British. Best. Rd 762006".
It is in good original condition. There are general signs of age and use, some small knocks around the base and minor dings in the shade but nothing detrimental. The chrome has tarnished in places but overall it displays very well. It is in fully working order and has been PAT tested. It has been re-wired to modern standards with a new chrome bulb holder to take a normal bayonet bulb.
The base of the lamp has a diameter of approximately 8 1/2" (22cm). At it's lowest it stands approximately 21" (53cm) high and can be adjusted up to 31"(79cm) high.
