source for pipped 45 mm (1 3/4") bulbs with E14 sockets?
« on: March 01, 2020, 05:48:21 pm »
Hello everyone,
I'm new to this forum and joined to try and find a source for a specific type of bulb for a restoration project I'm working on. I'm looking for old, NOS, or new bulbs which look like the one in the attached photo. They are 45 mm (1 3/4") diameter, have a pip on the end, and fit an E14 socket. They can be either 110 or 220V and will be put into occasional use.

Does anyone know of a source for this type of bulb? I have no idea and any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I'm curious to know what you are restoring that uses these bulbs?

It's a 1905-07 model machine shop sold by a German toy co. Apparently no one has these bulbs.

These carbon filament lamps haven't been produced in at least a hundred years and I wouldn't expect them to be easy to find, and I doubt that there's any modern bulb on the market today that would look authentic.  I have a few in my collection that look similar, but none look exactly alike.  Finding a matching set of NOS will be even harder.  Hopefully someone reading this will prove us wrong.
