The Original 1227 Task Light from Anglepoise was initially designed in 1935 and has been reissued to celebrate its 75th anniversary. George Carwardine, working in the automotive industry, was tinkering in his shop and developed a spring which could be moved easily in every direction yet also remain rigid when held in position.

THIS BULB DOES NOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA. Why?
The Original 1227 Task Light from Anglepoise was initially designed in 1935 and has been reissued to celebrate its 75th anniversary. George Carwardine, working in the automotive industry, was tinkering in his shop and developed a spring which could be moved easily in every direction yet also remain rigid when held in position. This new spring was the basis for the 1227. The aluminum shade was developed to concentrate the beam of light on the task at hand and therefore could use a lesser wattage lamp. The arm, which is also made out of aluminum, lets one adjust the lamp at the appropriate height, and the entire structure is supported by a weighted table base. It is no wonder it did not take long for the public to realize the 1227 would work just as well for a reading lamp as it did for factory task lighting.

Based in Britain, Anglepoise began as a metal spring and presswork company in 1855, evolved into creating lamps in the early 1930s, and today specializes in classic British design. Their modern creations are practical, energy efficient and durable, incorporating quality design and craftsmanship—a work ethic they have brought to their line of furniture as well. With selections like the iconic Original 1227 Task Light, based on a 1935 design, and the stylish Type 75 Light, Anglepoise's beloved lamps complement a variety of interiors.

Original 1227 Task Lamp is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from made where? No where on the box, or the lamp itself, is the country where the item is manufactured identified. the lamp looks and feels like a reproduction. Still, it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lamp! I had an Anglepoise Type75 and recently bought an Original 1227 (both in black). In terms of functionality, both work similarly and equally well. T75 has a minimal and modern feel, but the Original has the classic, retro touch that I love. The paint on the Original is more shiny. You won't go wrong with either. The price tag is a bit high but I think it's worth it. Delivery is fast from YLighting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Anglepoise 1227 task light was a disappointment and I returned it. I was really looking forward to getting my Anglepoise lamp but was very disappointed when I actually started using it. The light is unbalanced and difficult to adjust. The head flies up at the slightest provocation so that it is not really adjustable. You just have to carefully move the arm around until it's balanced just right and the light shines down. Otherwise, the light flies up and shines on the wall. Furthermore, at this price, I was expecting a little tank of a light. Not at all. It is cheaply made in China and not significantly different from the version you can purchase at elsewhere. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Great design. I purchased this lamp in red for task lighting in my office. It is a great design and provides excellent lighting. The lamp arrived promptly in perfect condition. I only wished the assembly instructions would specify that you need to screw in the light bulb before the lamp will remain in a desired position. It took me a few minutes to figure this out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very pleased with this light. This 1227 Task Light is very well made, and absolutely true to the original design. The fit and finish of all the parts is excellent, and assembling it was much simpler than I'd expected. I can't find anything wrong with it. It's a well-crafted, quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a quality lamp I adore this lamp! I had been searching for a vintage model for a long time, but they are riduculously expensive and not usually wired for the US. I was so excited to find one here and I couldn't be happier with it. It is very substantial, easy to adjust and puts out a perfect amount of light. As always, Y Lighting's fast shipping and great communication were excellent.
