Thomas Edison Carbon Filament Bulb
Splendid replica of Thomas Edison era, Victorian style carbon filament light bulb. Not only does this bulb emit a soft, eye pleasing glow but also provides a superior solution to the problem of accurately restoring fine early electric and gas style lighting fixtures. It is a common and sometimes frustrating experience for the dealer or restorer to place modern tungsten filament light bulbs in a nice turn-of-the-century fixture only to find that they are so bright (and modern looking) that it distracts from the beauty of the lamp. This bulb is intended for use on lighting fixtures from the 1880 to 1930 period. It is however, so unique and charming that you will want to use it anywhere an exposed light bulb would be used. 2000 hour average life. 40 watt - 1890 bulb, 6" tall, 3" diameter.
