Little wooden bulb holder...
« on: January 13, 2001, 10:01:00 am »
Here`s a nice interesting little thing I got recently....



It`s a wooden holder that a miniature base flashlight bulb was sold in, and measures 2 1/2 inches tall by about 7/8 diameter, and is British I`m sure. The printing on the top part says "METALLIC FILAMENT ELECTRIC BULB" and "HH" "Trade Mark" at the top. The bulb in the second picture probably isn`t the original, it bears the "Mazda" name round the base though so who knows?
Has anyone else come accross these? I`d never seen one before so would like to know if they`re particuarly hard to find and what sort of period would they be from? Were American flashlight bulbs sold in similar wooden holders/tubes once too?

thanks,

-chris
