Just wondering what the oldest fixture that you know of which has been serviced (re-lamped, cobbed, repaired, etc...) recently.

I know of a bunch of old clamshell fixtures (Westinghouse OV-20s and GE Form 400s) at a mobile home park at which my great grandma used to live. They all have LED corn lamps in them.

There are at least a fair amount of 1920s/1930s incandescent acorns in Pasadena, CA. The oldest in my area are LM Spherolite’s.

There are some 1950s-60s era lights near santamonica pier.

@Milwaukeeman2003, Have you got photos of the acorns?

Sadly no, but you can find photos of them here on LG.
