A contemporary of Terry and Sons George Carwardine originally worked for them so he may have been involved in its design. You can also see that there are similarities to the Anglepoise such as its arm like design. These are beautiful lamps, though I’v never been lucky enough to own one they are meant to function exceptionally well.

Introduced in 1950 the Jielde lamp is really an industrial lamp, but a very pretty one. They are pretty expensive now though!
The commercial potential of the articulated task light was noticed early on by the Norwegian Jac Jacobsen Company. After two four-spring 1209 Anglepoise lamps were included in a 1936 shipment of sewing machines, Jacobsen approached Herbert Terry and Sons and negotiated a license to manufacture and distribute a version of the lamp from Oslo, under the name Luxo. The Luxo L1 was launched in 1938. It was a slightly revised version of the early four-spring 1209.
Luxo saw huge success and Jacobsen got the license to produce and market the L1 in every country outside the British Commonwealth. This left Terry and sons, and Anglepoise, increasingly isolated. While LUXO went from strength to strength becoming an international household name that’s annual turnover is now in excess of £50 million Terry and sons was began to struggle. With only a small market and ever cheaper imports from outside, competition from Luxo and others forced the company to a point in 2001 it was making only 50,000 lamps a year, and faced closure.
