about BulbCollector.com
11.9.06


This site exists for the purpose of sharing items from my collection through pictures. Such items include antique light bulbs, early radio tubes and box art, Geissler and Crookes discharge tubes, x-ray tubes, Aerolux figural neon glow lights, vintage Christmas lights and more. I invite visitors to browse and download old lighting catalogs, early historical books on lighting, and a vast assortment of other paper items from the paper archives made available through this site. The gallery contains over 600 pictures of items from my personal collection with full descriptions that accompany most pictures. A discussion board exists to allow fellow collectors and historians to network with others and post classified ads. Currently the antique light bulb forum is home to over 300 members who share the same common interests. Comments and additional information about the items pictured here are always welcome, as are submitted and credited articles concerning the collecting and history of antique light bulbs. I'm always happy to help non-collectors who may have found an antique light bulb, but please review the FAQ pages before emailing me about an old light bulb you have come across. Ninety percent of the requests I get are answered there. If your questions are not answered there then feel free to contact me. I do not assign values to old light bulbs but I can help with research if you have an early light bulb that you are interested in learning more about. Please understand that I get numerous requests weekly and it is often impossible to answer all email but I will try my best!
