Title: Strange tiny bulb
Post by: xfire on May 19, 2017, 02:48:37 pm
I have an old Ceramic Christmas tree that is wired with these bulbs, I can't find replacement anywhere and don't know what they are called. Strange looking tiny bulbs in different colors.
Any help would be GREAT !
Thanks

Thanks for posting.  Odd little bulb and one that I haven't come across before.  Hopefully someone who does know can comment.

Thanks, yep no one seems to know much about it. Guess it's in the E5 Midget family. Have about 26 of them.

First you must check how the tree is wired. Serial (one removed - all go out) or parallel (with transformer). In both cases it it essential to know the voltage you operate each lamp with. They came in different voltages and you can still find then in a very similarly shaped and in different coulours. I would like to see a photo of the whole ceramic tree.
