If you like O.C. White, it’s time to graduate to the much rarer and even better lamps by Axcess! Today we are excited to offer for sale a true New England Industrial Revolution artifact: the Sampson “Axcess” flexible arm industrial work lamp! One of the first fixtures of its’ kind, the all-original American-made “Axcess” lamp was created right here in New England by the Sampson Axcess System Company at 434 Union St in Lynn, Massachusetts. Today the building at 434 Union houses the Lynn Historical Society. This expertly crafted work lamp features a iron mounting bracket and extended iron pipe, with a flexible arm. The lamp was mounted to a flat surface and used to provide light to a work area. This early 20th century piece is rugged and has held up incredibly well for close to 100 years. The lamp presents very well and in very good antique condition, with expected wear and patina commensurate with age and type of use. Lamp is in working condition. Signed in numerous places. Look at how the electric cord is routed along the outside edge of the flexible neck. Very cool… and patented! This is a wonderful opportunity to own a very rare and authentic American Industrial light fixture, the kind that every loft and industrial chic decorator and designer out there is dying to get their hands on! This piece has a wonderful patina that is highly coveted. This New England treasure won’t last! Fresh to the market!
