Admiralty Pattern Lamp with Bakelite Shade

This lamp is built to typical high quality Royal Navy specification in solid brass and is fitted with the original Bakelite shade. In service it would have been bulkhead mounted, but to make it more suited to life ashore, we have had a brass base added to the original switch box. It has been professionally rewired using appropriate modern wiring and is fitted with a fused 13 amp plug. The lamp has a ball and socket base to the stem to allow the lamp to be adjusted to suit and it can then be locked in the desired position by tightening the knurled ring. The switch box is marked with the makers name ‘Harcourts’ who operated out of Birmingham carrying out business as brass founders. Whist not marked, we believe the Admiralty Pattern designation number is AP7992. The original Bakelite shade has minor hairline cracks that have been repaired but these really do not detract when in use. This unique desk lamp reflects the current trend in industrial lighting design and would sit happily in a marine or Bakelite collection whilst still being entirely practical. It is very solidly built and as such weighs in at an impressive 2.7 kilos (5.8 lbs) so please check for a delivered price before ordering. Measures 18” high (45 cm)
