Modern reproductions generally use 4 watt bulbs so the total load will be 28 watts. Classic vintage sets often used 7 watt bulbs so they would comsume 49 watts.

Bring on the Big Snow! Can`t wait...

Yep, we did. I didn`t think it would do much of anything down here in south east Wales especially this early on in the season, but a half hour of light fluttering this morning just about 0700-0730 made everything look fantastic for a bit. All gone now :( but there`s always the photos...
