Early Thompson-Houston carbon filament bulb
« on: February 26, 2010, 08:06:04 pm »
Thank you administrator for helping me ID my bulb. Since I am not a bulb collector I was hoping someone here could tell me a ball park value and  proper venue for selling this bulb. It is a Thompson-Houston carbon on the base it says "manfd by IT-H. ELEC. CO. Lynn Mass. USA patent Jan. 7 1879 May 12 1885 patent applied for. It seems to be in excellent shape and works, it also has an old reverse socket plug so I have seen it light. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks
