My mother gave me this bulb from her friend this week. The story goes that her husband acquired this bulb from a retired doctor who lived down the street in Ft. Thomas, KY, USA between 1952 and 1960.

Very nice Robert like the way the base curves into the glass which seems fairly common at this time.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
