Flush With Green: Large Ajusco Lamp, ca. 1940s

If you’re a dedicated follower of this blog you’ll be aware of the infinite love affair I’m having with old workshop lamps. My apologies if it’s sounding like a broken record, but hopefully the merit of these heavy duty artifacts is self evident.

Here we have a rare find indeed: a complete and original Ajusco lamp in matte green. This alone is not enough to make it rare but what is of particular importance is the scale of this Goliath of the lighting realm. Measuring a whopping 64″ in overall length, this is the largest Ajusco task light I’ve come across. Its versatility and reach is almost unending.
