We love these old workbench lights here at Absolutely Nice, we can't help but wonder which shed or workshop they've come out of, befriending some old fella while he tinkers away on his Triumph or works away on that morning's crossword puzzle.
These lamps are hugely popular not only for their unique look but functionality too. With the lamps arms and swivel head, it's easily positioned to the owner's desired length and height. This one also comes with the added option of being able to clip on to a work surface or shelf as well as being able to support itself by extending two little arms, as photographed. Chipped, scratched and rusted all over, these are all the things that only add to the light's appeal. We have however, given the light a good clean and removed the rust from every single washer, nut and bolt to improve it's movements.

The light when fully extended measures approximately 52cm long.
