Clarke & CO (Succrs.)

Herbert Terry & Sons George Carwardine (1887–1947) invented the Anglepoise lamp while developing new concepts for vehicle suspensions and quickly recognised that the joints and spring tension mechanism created had benefits for an industrial task lamp. Carwardine entered into a licensing agreement with Herbert Terry and Sons who manufactured and marketed the lamp in the mid 1930s. The original four spring design was made for working environments, whereas the later three spring Anglepoise was designed for more domestic applications and which saw the release of the 1227 model.
