Modern Electric Lighting / Re: Help ID these bulbs, please!

A quick Amazon search for "e26 led globe" yields several hits that may work, though perhaps not dimmable.

Modern Electric Lighting / Help ID these bulbs, please!
« Last post by Newbulber on April 19, 2017, 02:09:10 am »
Hello there,

I'm wondering if anyone can help ID the bulbs in the picture attached? I have the same Lindsey Adelman You Make It Chandelier and am interested in replacing the bulbs with these guys, but don't know much about bulbs. I know it is an E26 socket.

Is there a LED and dimmable solution perhaps?

Thanks in advance for your help and expertise!

Welcome to the forum, macpiper.  Please feel welcome to share any information you have with us about the history of lighting, and if you have any questions then feel free to ask and we'll do our best to answer them.  I'd love to hear more about your father's work and collection.

Welcome to the forum!
Did your father have any information on GE holiday lighting such as distributor catalogs?
These are highly sought by collectors and historians.

By the way, photos must be 100 KB or less in size to be accepted.
Try reducing the size or resolution of the photo using a photo editor.
Check out my website.

My father was employed by PP&L for 38 years.  During his tenure he gave many presentations about the history of lighting , collected bulbs, ephemera, and a lot of GE information.  When he passed he asked that I find someone who will appreciate his work.  I am looking forward to a new learning experience and the ability to share.

I have tried 4 times now to post a picture of an Edison lamp and my email is rejected for too large of file and one time you didn't exist?

Hi collectors.

This is the front page of my book,and an internal page that speak about " victoria" light bulb of Brush Swan.
This collocate the date of begin  production at latest 1883 or early 1884.
In this book there is described a first commercial and tecnical  comparation with the three
systems of filament about construction, type of carbon and  stability of light ; they are: Edison, Cruto and Swan.

Hi Franco,

The book you describe sounds just as interesting as the bulb and socket you posted.  Again, a great find for you!
