Mid-Century lamp by Ashco Pty Ltd of 70 Parramatta Road Stanmore, Sydney Australia. Marked under with a sticker certifying compliance with Australian Furniture Standard S1. c.1955



Originally sold as an industrial work light, now a beautiful desk lamp.
Built in the 1950’s by W.R.Terry in Melbourne Australia, this lamp has a cast steel base, steel arms and a bakelite shade and switch.


The Terence Conran designed ‘Mac-Lamp’ was first exhibited at the 1951 ‘Festival of Britain’ and then put into production for Habitat stores through the 1950’s to 1970’s. The design remained unchanged over those years other than the original wooden arms being changed to ‘wood grained’ plastic. The shade is spun aluminium and the base is a plastic cover over cast steel.
