Hadrill & Horstmann Lamp, Industrial Styled

This is a Hadrill & Horstmann "Roller" lamp which was made in Godalming, Surrey, England / Great Britain around 1940-1950.

NOTE: I (NOW) DON'T THINK THAT THE ALUMINIMUM SHADE IS THE ORIGINAL ONE
Specifications:
Height: ~820mm max
Width: ~850mm max
Base: 153mm square
Shade diameter: 170mm
Lead length: 2.6 m
Weight: 3.3 kg

Construction: Steel, Aluminium, brass.

Bulb: Takes a standard NZ bayonet (as opposed to screw) lamp.

This lamp is fully adjustable and has a solid steel round counterbalance with a square solid metal base. It is very stable, even at full horizontal extent, thanks to the brilliant design with the counterbalance, other designs topple, trust me, I know! ;) Also the switch is on the lamp, where you want it, rather than on the lead halfway down the back of the desk.
