Antique Bulb Discussion / Help in old bulb ID please
« Last post by zorgon on Today at 11:11:18 am »
Hi Forum:
  Another amateur looking for a bulb ID.
  I found this item in a box of old heavy tools; it's amazing it survived as it appears to be made of very thin glass.  It measures 3" in length and has no visible markings.  The base threads measure 0.46" across.  At the widest point, the bulb is 1.54".  I don't have a base socket the correct size to try it out but it does show resistance with a meter across the contact points.  Any help properly identifying and dating the bulb would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  I hope the images show up.

Antique Bulb Discussion / Chase art deco lamp , head bulb , seeking information
« Last post by Chase on August 23, 2018, 02:23:49 am »
Searching for a Chase Brass Copper Company art deco Colonel lamp head bulb circa 1930 . Thread is same as C9 E17 , however the bulb is larger and egg shaped . I cant find a example anywhere other then those used as the head for this lamp . It has a painted face . Anyone know if this bulb was only produced for this lamp , or was a production item that can be found . I have the lamp missing the bulb . Even a non working example would be of interest . Any background information would be most appreciated , thank you .

Discovered a page from the company catalog , states the bulb was easily found everywhere . Oddly I find no examples anywhere , with exception seems they may have been used in prewar marquee signs ?

Can you post a few pictures of what you think are your oldest bulbs? Also your Ediswan? Will these be available for sale?
Thanks - Karl

Huh.  Well how about that?  Knowing it isn't a retirement solution I can use it and not be too concerned if it does burn out.  I appreciate the response and your willingness to share your expertise.

Antique Bulb Discussion / Inherited Ediswan and Mazda antique bulbs - query
« Last post by TomClutz on August 07, 2018, 12:10:38 am »
Hello

Some time ago I inherited several antique bulbs in their original boxes (although some boxes have sustained some damage over the years) which I have been hanging on to for years. There remains 19 of them, branded Royal Ediswan and Mazda, made in Australia according to the box (I live in Melbourne). They are yellow tinted (bright!) and all function.

I find myself in a difficult financial situation due to health complications and have started going through my shed trying to make do with things I simply cannot justify hanging on to any longer.

I was hoping someone may be able to assist me in determining the value of these bulbs and perhaps the best marketplace to find a buyer who would appreciate them for what they are.

Many thanks.
