Wanted to Buy / Matchless Star
« Last post by zozman on December 17, 2018, 09:35:51 am »
Wanted To Buy-Large original Matchless Star lamp bases.

These 960 renewable lamp bases were used on the large 3-1/8" diameter 110-120 volt 15 watt Wonder Stars Christmas ornaments made by the Matchless Company in Chicago during the 1930s.

I specifically want the C-9 intermediate base application. I don't need the valuable crystal attached to the Wonder Star.

Premium prices paid for quantity and condition.

Send picures of what you have.

New:Renewal base re-lamping service.

I can relamp your 900 series Matchless star base ring with a similar 110-120 volt, 15 watt, clear incandescent bulb to give life to your vintage lamp. You can't enjoy it if its not lit! Relamping service is exclusively for the standard medium E26/C15 and intermediate E17/C9 applications. You keep your crystal, I relamp just the base.

The relamping makes your Matchless Star glow again! Quick turn around for the holidays!

Estimates availble on request.

Send PM for contact or zozman50@hotmail.com

Modern Electric Lighting / Help identify this bulb/socket please
« Last post by Miskah on December 14, 2018, 05:50:08 pm »
Hello, I am trying to replace the bulb to this socket in my house. I purchased an A19 bulb but it doesn't seem to work when I flip the switch. It screws into the socket fine, thought it would be a E26 size but I guess not. Since it won't turn on. Only works with the original bulb as seen in picture. Need to buy replacement or adapter if it is a different base, to fit an A19.
Just need help identifying this socket size please! I tried Google and it's all confusing.

Please see uploaded photo:

Antique Bulb Discussion / Re: PLease help identify these antique bulbs!
« Last post by cmshapiro on December 06, 2018, 09:37:53 pm »
It appears that everything that you found came from a site that used the Brush Swan base and socket, which is one of the more scarce base and socket styles.

Bulbs 1,3,4 and 5 are all later, c 1900 examples of a very common bulb form but with a scarce base.

bulb 2 is a Shelby brand bulb with a Brush Swan base, which is a very nice find as Shelby bulbs have a good following.

Along with bulb 5 is an original Brush Swan socket, another great find.

While I dont need any Brush Swan sockets or bulbs to fill any spots in my collection, others will like to purchase these and you should do well with them.

I would value bulb 2 at $400-500, the socket with bulb 5 at $400-500, and the rest of the bulbs (except the damaged based one) at $200-300.

 I know a few collectors who would be interested in these, feel free to contact me at cmshapiro@me.com and I can connect you directly with them. The market is kind of weak on ebay for the past 5-6 months, but that is another avenue, but I think by the time you deal with the weak market, and then ebay/paypal fee's, you may do better with direct buyers who are fair and serious collectors.
