30-set British lights, can anyone help?
« on: July 16, 2000, 12:27:00 pm »
Hello Christmas light collectors.
I have a set of 30 small-bulb series wired Christmas lights. I do not know anything about them. The lights are currently put away safely in my attic and will not be taken out until December, so I`ve done a diagram of one of the holders.
   
The holder colours are-Red, Yellow, Pink, White and Blue. The light set works, although 3 of the original 8-volt ("LES" E-5) bulbs are replaced with new ones. I hope someone out there knows what these are, ie, who made them/when? and possibly, how much they`re likely to be worth(not that I`ll ever sell them).
