Antique Bulb Discussion / Sockets to match antique lighting.
« Last post by Karlucci on November 14, 2018, 04:36:54 pm »
Hi. I'm new to this great forum and website. Name's Karl. I've been restoring antique lamps and lighting fixtures for an antique lighting shop for the last 35 years and I've come to know the various sockets manufactured for Edison bulbs between 1900 to 1920 in America. I've repaired, restored and replaced many and I can recommend the ones that have lasted the best over 100 years that are probably good for another 100 years.
These are almost all brass shelled "fat boy" pull chain and turn paddle sockets, and I can match most that were made. I'd be happy to answer questions and send pictures if you are trying to restore something special.

I don't know about the manufacturer, but I can tell you that it is a Westinghouse pin base made for a Westinghouse socket. Probably made and used in America around 1905. If you want to sell it, let me know at: karlucci1@hotmail.com

Antique Bulb Discussion / Jenic bulb
« Last post by greenlight3 on November 03, 2018, 10:08:45 pm »
I have light bulb that has imprint on the bulb end of "Jenic 100V 30W". On the side of the glass just above the metal base is an imprint of "U.S. Army". Imprinted on the metal screw part is "100V 30W". There is also an imprint in the metal of what looks like Japanese characters. Is it a military light bulb used during the U.S. occupation of Japan after WW11?

Antique Bulb Discussion / My great grandmother gave me an old light bulb back in 1960
« Last post by wseifts on October 25, 2018, 08:36:42 pm »
I received this old bulb with a string switch back in the early 1960's.  My great grandmother from upstate New York gave it to me.  It seems to be in great shape.  The tag says "Economical electric lamp co. NY"  I forgot I had it.  Would someone be kind enough to share any information on this old light bulb?  My Avatar is a picture of this bulb.   :|Thank you very much.  Bill

Antique Bulb Discussion / Found an anniversary edition replica Edison lamp
« Last post by copperwire on October 22, 2018, 01:51:44 am »
Hello, My Grandmother recently passed and we were going through some old trunks in her basement and found a Edison bulb. I believe its a replica of his masterpiece. Its in its original cardboard box dated 1929. The box has the words" Lights Golden Jubilee" Printed on it. Just wondering if it was worth anything?

Antique Bulb Discussion / Edison-Westinghouse Base Combo
« Last post by Brock on October 06, 2018, 01:04:58 am »
What type of socket would I use for a light bulb, consisting of an Edison-Westinghouse Base Combo type? I would imagine that a Westinghouse bayonet type socket would work, or I may be wrong.

Antique Bulb Discussion / Help in old bulb ID please
« Last post by zorgon on September 21, 2018, 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.
