A cryselco carbon filament lamp with a pip on top from God knows when. It has "27" hand painted into the stem, but suggestions have been that the pip dates it older than 1927

As far as I know, mine would be a GE 25w "Mazda" clear incandescent.  Seen here:  http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2337&pos=13&pid=84716

As far as I know, my oldest linear fluorescent would be this:  http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2624&pos=31&pid=80066

One of these may be the oldest of mine. Does anyone know when approximately it was made? I'm not sure if the Westinghouse or the Laco is older.

I'll add in more 1930s GE type D in colored versions as well especially after an recent eBay score that included several orange ones just over a month ago.

I have a 1990 GE 175 watt Mercury and a 1988 Philips 250w Comfort lamp.  Other than that, most of my lamps are from recent times.  I used to have some older lamps, but when I moved to Wisconsin, they disappeared somehow when my parents moved and packed up what I left behind.  They may be in my shed buried underneath a bunch of junk.

I have a West German GE inside frost A19 incandescent.  It had to have been made during or before 1989 when the Berlin Wall split Germany.  It's a great bulb, in my permanent collection.  Here I am at the Berlin Wall on my trip to Germany last year.
