Industrial Mek Elek Machinist Lamp
Superb mid Century industrial machinist lamp by MEK-ELEK of London. The lamp is articulated at 4 joints and the enamelled shade turns 360', the brass cable entry can be moved to the other side. It has fixing holes on the back and the side of the switch for mounting on the floor, desk or wall. The makers name is stamped on the switch housing and on both sides of the steel brackets. The RD no: stamped on the switch housing dates the design to 1948. Lightly stripped, polished and a clear coat of wax. Loosened and collapsed for shipping so it will require re tightening
The lamp is rewired recently with 3m of 3 core Black braided cable fully PAT testing with pass label.
Really good condition, some marks to the steel, some marking on the White enamel and marks around the rim. The dolly switch and on/off label are modern replacements. There is a slight twist to the bottom section but not noticeable.
Finish: Original steel and glass shades
Max reach: approx 1m (3ft 3in)
Diameter of shade: 145mm (5.75in)
