Box fresh!

Vintage Anglepoise lamp and original box | H is for Home

We’ve had lots of these classic Herbert Terry Anglepoise lamps over the years, but we’ve never had a box fresh example before. In fact, we’ve never seen an original box until now.

The earlier, stepped-base Anglepoise lamps have firm followers, but this early 1970s version also has devoted fans… and, along with the very similar 1960s Model 75, it’s probably our favourite shape. This site will show you the various Terry-designed Anglepoise lamps available to hunt out – or help you date your own vintage Anglepoise.

This Model 90 is available in a variety of colourways. As you can see from the packaging, it’s mushroom grey in this case.

Some people like their vintage homewares with a bit of wear & tear – others prefer to search out pristine examples.

If you’re the latter, this could be the lamp for you… fully working, and hidden away for 40 years. We can’t guarantee it’s unused, but it certainly looks it!

Here’s a selection of recent buys.

Close up of 'Tina' vintage print by J. H. Lynch

Ladies first, of course – a lovely vintage framed print of ‘Tina’ by J H Lynch. This one’s a very nice copy with original green hessian border.

Two white vintage Herbert Terry designed desk lamps

Two lamps by Herbert Terry & Sons next. The older of the pair, a classic Anglepoise, has the stepped base which is much sought after. It has obvious signs of wear, but we like this finish. Not battered, but loved & used. The other goose-necked lamp dates from the 1960s – we’ve not actually had this model before, but it’s a nice design – perfect for desk or bedside.

large vintage Bitossi bowl in blue, yellow and green

This Bitossi bowl is very attractive. We love the incised and stamped decoration and bold colours – very boho vintage!

Vintage blue and pink art glass vase

More handmade decoration with this glass vase with blue glass trailed over the pink marbled glass. It’s like a boiled sweet and very tactile. There’s an etched makers mark for Mdina glass to the base.

set of blue spotted Worcester Ware place mats

Finally, some vintage place mats. We’ve had this op-art like circle pattern in various shades and mat sizes over the years. They’re very eye-catching and always prove popular.
