Hey Group - any idea on these? Found something similar that is listed as Chelsea Whitefriars circa 1958 by Peter Rodd & Richard Stevens for Thorn Atlas Lighting. What do you think, any agreement on this with the Whitefriars experts.

Nice lamps, The shades could be by Whitefriars, but not seen these before.
I am inclined to move this to the vintage lighting forum though.

A bit late to the party, but, yes, the series is 'Chelsea' and the shades are by Whitefriars.

The wall lamps were produced for a good amount of time, but seem to be quite scarce these days. I've only ever seen a handful of them over the years (I've got a pair myself).

The earliest incarnations had tubes of steel with a silver-effect paint, and the later ones, I believe, were polished aluminium. Yours appear to be the later ones - which is no bad thing, as the silver paint on the early ones has a habit of peeling off in sheets if rust gets underneath.
