Allen Type A405/L Ultra Violet Inspection Lamp

This is a very nice Allen Type A405/L Ultra Violet Inspection Lamp. It was made by PW Allen & Co, of 253, Liverpool Road, London, N1. It would have been used in industry as an inspection lamp for Non Destructive Testing (NDT).

In good cosmetic and working condition, the lamp comes with its original Black leather transit case lined with soft blue fabric. The lamp has been electrically tested and has passed the UK Portable Appliance Test (P.A.T). Both the case and lamp have some superficial scuffs commensurate with age and use.
