Description


Very rare example of an early factory machinist’s lamp made in England by Dugdills. c.1900

Manufactured from steel with an industrial finish showing remnants of old paint. An earlier Dugdill lamp featuring the earlier cogged tightening bolts. Fully articulating, allowing this versatile lamp to be positioned in any manner and can be desk, wall or ceiling mounted. The white enamel shade shows signs of its industrial use.

Rewired with 2m of black twisted flex and BS 3-pin plug

The design of this is attributed to John Dugdill, an electrical engineer from Manchester, who filed a patent for a ‘rotating electrical switch’ in 1906
