This is unbelievable !
I've always enjoyed collecting antiques, but
I neverr once even considered Antique Lightbulbs until I stumbled onto this Web Site ! They're FANTASTIC !
What a wonderful Web Site too !!
Is this one of those Corporate Designed sites ?

Ray,

Thanx for the nice words on the site.

Collecting and researching antique light bulbs is a great hobby and beats the heck out of collecting b**nie babies   There's something fascinating to me about finding a delicate glass light bulb that was not meant to be saved but rather thrown away when it's useful life had expired. The challenge of finding them is equally rewarding. There are many flavors of collecting, some prefer collecting the earliest incandescent lamps from the 1880s while others enjoy collecting more modern forms of electric lighting, then there's vintage Christmas lights, street lighting, and list goes on and on.

Anyway if this is of interest to you then you've come to the right place to meet other collectors and feel welcome to post anytime.

Happy collecting!
