Do you have many details of the type of lamp that you require, such as a picture ?
C7 bulbs are usually understood to be those with a non standard size screw thread, E12 I think, and designed for parallel burning on USA mains so 120 volt. Wattages vary but 5 watts or 7 watts is common. These are readily available from ebay.

Presumably these are not what you require ? Flat topped probably needed ?

Adam I bought 50 of these last year thought they would do according to their site info, which was kind of false in the end.

not long enough to reach down into socket you have to trim the holder, or put a big blob of solder on bottom of the bulb, to much trouble and perhaps dangerous with children around but very close to what I'm looking.
