About this item

This is a rare original post war Bestlite BL1 desk lamp dating from around the late 1940's designed by Robert Dudley Best for Best & Lloyd. Heavily influenced by the Bauhaus movement, Robert Dudley Best is regarded as one of the great modernist designers and the Bestlite is recognised as a design icon, helped in no small part by the fact that Winston Churchill had one on his desk! The lamp is fully extendable and adjustable and would look stunning in a mid-century modern or contemporary home setting.

These true British design classics are becoming very desirable and are going up in value all the time.

The lamp is in good vintage condition showing wear commensurate with its age. It has its original flex and has been PAT tested.As a rule all of our pieces are in good to excellent vintage condition. Please remember that if a piece is in original condition, minor wear should be expected.
