Travers,

I have a half dozen bulbs like that. They are amber colored tubular bulbs, standard E-27 medium screw base, with (ceramic?) disc magnet glued on the outside. I don't know offhand if the glass is colored or lacquer coated.  All but one are still sealed on the original blister display cards (I had to open one to see it work!) If I can find them, I'll sell you one or two - you should probably get a pair in case they don't match the one you already have. At least one of the display cards has a lenticular animated flame effect, way cool!  Sorry, I'll probably have to keep those, unless I have more than two. :-)

As i promised almost four months ago, here are a link where can be viewed a moving picture (loop-mode GIF file) recently taken from one of my flickering filament lamps

Here are another link to a smaller picture of the same lamp (intended for a quick downloading)

Thanks to Yoshi for the latter file. He have been "reprocessed" the former one for me.  


Enjoy it!

Best regards,
M. Gonz?lez.

Cool animation M?nico - this must have taken a long time to create.

Here's another if anyone is interested in buying one.  I've seen a few listed by this seller:
