This lamp has been in use at my parents' house since the 80's; it probably has over 15,000 hrs on it and still works fine. Note the unusual bulb shape. I just removed it for my collection yesterday. I don't remember the manufacturer, but these lamps were purchased thru a mail-order company as "extra long life lamps" rated for 10,000 hours. They use a Krypton filling but still tend to darken over the years - the rest of the lamps were thrown out since they had become so dim (but hadn't failed!) This was supposed to be a 52w lamp ("60w equivalent" but is about as bright as a 40w); some of the others were 90w I think.

Verd a ray classic.
May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.
