A good antique Dugdill's brass desk / table / work / task lamp (or portable standard according to an approx 1913 Dugdill's catalogue in my possession - the "daisy joint" or beaded wheel tensioners featured on this lamp don't appear in this catalogue and maybe have been phased out by this point dating the lamp to c1910/Edwardian) matched with a good antique prismatic glass shade. English, c1910.

A lovely lamp in excellent condition with knopped stem and a moulded and lobed base (stamped "DUGDILL PATENT"), also weighted with cast iron.
Freshly rewired after cleaning / polishing with 3m fabric flex, new BC lampholder, 3 amp traditional plug and as a special treat; a vintage ivory coloured egg shaped inline switch ( i don't think it is possible to buy anything as small, neat and elegant as this anymore). Pat tested.

Dimensions in inches/cms;
18.5"/47cm to centre of the first central joint.
7.25"/18.5cm arm length (joint centres).
31"/80cm max height (straight up inc. shade).
24"/60cm height with arm at approx 45 degrees upwards.
Shade is 5"/13cm max. diameter.

Edward Haes has been dealing in architectural elements and antiques for the past 20 years, initially sourcing most of his stock from disused public buildings and demolition sites.  Some of his architectural pieces can be found on The Hoarde.

He enjoyed the social history of these places and wishes all his later purchases could have the same perfect provenance.

He continues to buy a diverse range of antiques, with a speciality in lighting, mainly from the UK and sells to dealers, commercial and private clients. He is happy to “tune in” to customers projects and help advise on selecting  the correct pieces.  You can also find some of Haes other items on the Decorative Collective website as well.
