Bond's apartment in SPECTRE doesn't have much in it, but next to the leather chair we can spot a black Anglepoise Original 1227 Desk Lamp.

In No Time To Die, we can spot a white or grey colored Anglepoise Original 1227 Desk Lamp on the boat where James Bond meets Felix Leiter and Logan Ash. The lamp can be seen during the fight scene inside the boat.

The Anglepoise lamp is an iconic design from British designer George Carwardine. The 1227 model was released in 1935, 3 years after the first Anglepoise lamp. An Anglepoise lamp uses a spring mechanism which gives it the possibility to set the light in different positions.

The lamp has become a design classic, and is still available almost unchanged, to this day. There are now several color variations available. The lamp in Bond's apartment in SPECTRE is the Deep Slate (almost Black) model, most likely with the Brass hardware and the twisted wire.

The Anglepoise Original 1227 Desk Lamp in Deep Slate is available at UNCRATE.

You can also try Amazon UK (£195), or Anglepoise EU (€295) or Anglepoise USA ($295320).

Note that there also is a Mini desk lamp version of the same lamp (which is cheaper), and a Giant floor lamp version, so make sure to get the regular Original 1227 Desk Lamp size if you want the same lamp as seen in the film. Also most versions are the non-Brass version.

In the same apartment we can see the Royal Doulton Bulldog (M's gift to Bond).

Anglepoise in other Bond films

Anglepoise desk lamps can also be spotted in the movie SkyFall, in the new 'underground' MI6 office. Some secret service employees have aluminum and black Anglepoise Type 75 lamps on their desk. Bill Tanner first uses an Anglepoise Type 75 lamp to check out the bullet fragments given to him by Bond, and later he has an Anglepoise Type 1228 on his desk in the room of M, who also has an Anglepoise Type 1228 on her new undergound desk, which replaced the Artemide Tolomeo that she had on her desk before the explosion at MI6 Headquarters.

This a difficult one, your main picture is showing the correct wiring, however most modern versions now have the single sheath two core wire, and therefore not screen accurate. A competent electrician could rewire and test (PAT) of course, there is a modern version of the old single core twin wire available. However I believe this also an original 1227 showing in the picture in very good condition with silver hardware, not brass as in the more recent version. It is very difficult to tell of course, the lighting being the way it is set. Looking at alternative pictures, under a search ( James Bond Apartment Spectre ), there are two pictures from the Telegraph I think it was, showing more clearly the chair and lamp and the hardware looks silver on the Anglepoise. You can if you are lucky find an original one on place like eBay of course, though a good one will cost almost as much as the new one. You can still get the brass version with the twisted wire, but again these are mostly on eBay, etc. If you see a supplier showing a picture of a 1227 with twisted wires, ensure it is as pictured before you purchase.
