Alan Grainger ‘Acornman’ Mahogany Standard Lamp

Stock ref: DS1352

1982

Rare solid mahogany standard lamp from Alan 'Acornman' Grainger at Acorn Industries. Alan and Bob Hunter the 'Wrenman' are amongst the few Yorksire makers who have offered items in other solid hardwoods, alongside the oak ranges  for which they are better known. Octagonal  base with one facet featuring the trademark incised carved  acorn,  long tapering octagonal stem featuring inlays to alternate facets. In lovely condition and working order, just a few minor usage knocks / scratches,  originally made to match the table lamp (stock ref DS1352).

Part of a range of mahogany acornman pieces acquired from a private estate near York, the original invoice confirming it was purchased new  on 5/5/82.

Handmade to the same exacting standards as the oak ranges. Originally costing about the same prices as the equivalent oak items  the mahogany pieces  now represent great value compared to the currently more fashionable oak pieces. 

Size: 30.5(dia) x 150(h) excl bulb fitting.
