Now that's interesting. We had some 6v and 12v ones but they had standard 2 pin B22 bayonet caps with nothing stopping them from accidentally being inserted into a 240v socket. They were leftovers from when my father used to hire/sell caravans. Unfortunately they were disposed of long before I discovered this site.

Say 'O' for an Osram, Osram, Osram, think about tonight today (old advertising jingle)

I've got a few 25V GLS lamps, they all have normal B22d caps. There's a seller on eBay with a 40W GEC B22d-3 one but he wants more than I can afford right now for it

How much are they asking, if you don't mind my asking? I have looked at listings on eBay before and decided not to buy them too. I've seen some rose Charmlights on eBay for the equivalent of £3.50 each, and in my opinion that is just too expensive, because I have 10 of those particular Charmlights already I think. They cost me the equivalent of £2.50 per bulb which I think was ok, as delivery was included. I also thought to myself, at £3.50 per bulb, maybe somebody who really wants them could have them, so they can get some enjoyment out of them too. I bought a pair of Tesco soft white 100W bulbs for the equivalent of £3.50 each a while ago, and one arrived with a broken filament. Fortunately, the seller refunded me half the cost, but it's made me think twice about paying that much for them as some sellers might not be as understanding.

All of my low voltage gls bulbs I've bought so far as joblots, one of which I'd been watching for over a year I think. I offered a slightly cheeky price and the seller accepted, and these are 12V 100 watters!! Looking at a lot of sellers on eBay they're asking upwards of £8.00 per bulb for a 12V gls now, and that's ridiculous. They are not hard to find if you know the model number of the manufacturer, i.e. Ring R110 for 12V 50W gls. Some lighting suppliers still have stocks of other low voltage lamps too.

Me and Mr. Kipling have a good relationship. He is exceedingly good to me.

£9.95, which is far more than I'm willing to pay for a single lamp. See here if you're interested.

Yes that's a ridiculous price for an incandescent lamp, even if it is an NOS/special application lamp.
I'd expect 4 or 5 lamps for that price.

People will pay it though, which is why some sellers exploit the market. I don't really blame them, if they can find somebody daft enough to pay that price, but it's annoying for the rest of us.

I saw some MA/V lamps recently going for far more than I could ever afford, plus some SLI ones, which was a pity, would love to get examples of both of those

Yeah that's silly. Far too much. The only time I've ever spent a fair bit on one bulb, £18.00 in fact, was on a TCP Rustic bulb, that is a giant bulb with a spiral filament. I think it's 15 or 16 cm wide, and probably over 30 cm long. I thought the price was acceptable because the whole thing is handmade.

I see that lamp is from DazzlingVarietyStore. I have bought stuff from him and he seems ok. That is a bit pricey though. Some of the lamps he sells are a bargain though; I have bought a lot of 25W bulbs from him!

I paid £12.50 (incl. postage) for the 1000W Thorn MBF/U lamp I have, as I wasn't sure if/when I'd ever get the chance at another new one. That's the most I've spent on a single lamp, though.

The thing is that's a bit more complex and larger than a normal GLS lamp (even if it is low voltage) and would have sold for more when new than the GLS lamps would have, so that's a fairly acceptable price for something like that.
