A Bestlite 'BL1' desk / table lamp by Robert Dudley.
An exceptional example & a rare model with a cast metal base & brass upright supporting an articulated arm with height adjustable friction mechnism. The base & shade are in near immaculate red crinkle paint & the lamp retains its original switched brass lamp holder.
A super lamp, not often found in brass, particularly in this condition.
Bestlite lamps are an iconic part of Great British design & are in fact still produced today, designed by Robert Dudley Best, the range has been in continuous production since 1930. Developed at the end of the Bauhaus movement, the lamps utilitarian forms and clean lines are strong nod toward the period & have stood the test of time like many other timeless Bauhaus inspired designs.
Rewired in twisted black flex.
1930's
Wear commensurate with age, excellent overall & the best example I've come across personally. Of good scale, the lamp extends to a maximum of 77cm in height.
