"Elektra" 120V, 75W blue bulb
« on: July 20, 2002, 01:34:00 am »
Might somebody be interested in this clean and FUNCTIONAL 120V, 75 W bulb, made of blue glass, which bears "Elektra" sign with two lightnings? Has common brass socket.
My guess is it was made in Europe (Germany? Austria? Czechoslovakia?) before WW2. I may send you a picture of it. Comments welcome. Thanks!

the lamps under name ELEKTRA was made in formerly Czechoslovakia, under inland product name - factory owner was Philips.
. End of production under name Elektra was around in end of II.WW.

Hi everone,

I recently got interested in light bulbs(especially the old & unique shaped with unusual filament).
I like to use 12,18 & 24 volt transformers to just light the filament. If anyone has some interesting bulbs for sale  i would love to see them (eyecantthink@yahoo.com). I'm more interested in industrial bulbs like for lighthouse, street light, boat etc..
i have been checking Ebay but it's rare that i come across anything that unique, and I  really don't want to pay the ebay price for the common edison bulbs.
thank you all in advance.
