Just picked up a very rare Crestworth Twiggy Lamp. It's believed to one of the rarest lamps that Crestworth produced.
Designed by Edward Craven - Walker in the late 1960's and the patent was completed in early 1970.
Twiggy is described as "THE SENSATIONAL ALL-PURPOSE LAMP" in a 1970s Crestworth Brochure. Think of any situation where a flexible all purpose lamp could be used, then think of Twiggy.
The Twiggy Lamp is essentially an all purpose lamp with extreme functionality as you can keep on constantly changing the position and the form of the lamp by adjusting it.
This version may even by a prototype as it has a Flock covering to the shade.
Many thanks to Anthony at http://www.flowoflava.com/ for all his help on this lamp.
