Hadrill and Horstmann Counterpoise 'Roller' Lamp, England c.1950

Hadrill and Horstmann Counterpoise 'Roller' Lamp, England c.1950


Amazing reach for a lamp of this period, the steel counterbalance rolls through the full range of motion giving perfect balance in all positions, and giving the lamp it's nickname, 'The Roller'.

Horstmann lamps have a more stable function than spring loaded lamps like Herbert Terry's Anglepoise. This is a great lamp for architects, designers and makers - it will move and stay where you want it to go without compromise and looks handsome in every position. 

Signed Hadrill and Horstmann to the cast aluminium armature.
