1950s Ergon Infra Red Medical Lamp Repurposed As A Desk Lamp

This is an absolutely gorgeous 1950s Ergon Infra Red Medical Lamp Repurposed As A Desk Lamp.

In its original finish, it comprises a blue coated aluminium shade, polished aluminium arm, with a blue stepped steel base. There is a butterfly key at the junction of the base and arm to allow adjustment of the angle.

Perfect for a desk or for use as accent lighting. It has been rewired with gold wire,  electrically tested, and is working beautifully.  

In good condition, the shade does have scuffs and surface scratches commensurate with age and use.

Approximate Size:

  • Base Width: 15.5 cm
  • Height (from Base to top of stand excluding shade): 43 cm
  • Base Depth: 20.1 cm
  • Shade Diameter: 23.3 cm

Made by Ergon Electrical Manufacturing Co, whom were manufacturers of Electro Medical Infra Red Appliances and based at Vencourt Place, King Street, Hammersmith, London, W6. The lamp is based on a design going back to the 1930s.

Since it no longer complied with current Health and Safety regulations, it was too dangerous to continue to use it as a heat lamp, hence it has been converted to a desk lamp.

Repurposing work undertaken:

  • Rewired with gold flex: 0.5cm, 3 core, PVC sheathed, cotton braided.
  • Has a brass bayonet light fitting 
  • New CE marked white plug top fitted along with a 3A fuse.
  • New low energy, CE marked, bulb. Portable Appliance Testing undertaken (PAT): The lamp has been electrically tested using a flagship Seaward Europa Plus PAT tester, and passed the UK Portable Appliance Inspection.

A great looking vintage industrial light for your office, workplace or for bench craft work. Wonderful iconic design; really special! It is just waiting for you to add your own plug adapter (if outside the UK).
