Rare Dugdills Industrial Arts and Crafts 'Open Petal Cog' Brass Table/Desk Lamp.
A superb, untouched and extremely rare early brass 'Open Petal Cog' brass table or desk lamp by John Dugdill of Stockport, Manchester.
Featuring the rarest form of both 'open petal' adjusting cogs with 'leaf form' embellishments this table/desk lamp represents the earliest and most intricate work of John Dugdill who is considered to be the pioneer of early industrial lighting.
The interesting industrial hybrid design amalgamates the Arts and Crafts style prevalent at the time of manufacture with characteristics of the work by WAS Benson.
The lamp has a weighted base for stability and its main stem can extend forward by means of a twist action locknut hidden under the leaf embellishment. The light bulb socket switch is the original fully operational Dugdill part together with its original white opaline petal form glass shade.
The lamp remains in completely untouched original condition with all its parts fully operational and intact.
Size: 43 cm maximum extended height.
Marks: Stamped 'Dugdill Patent' to rear of base.
Condition: In excellent untouched original condition retaining its original patina and lacquer finish. In full working order and re-wired with black silk braided twist flex ready to use.
