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.

That’s a beautiful lamp to display! Great example of American incandescent lamp manufacturing that’s becoming less common.

I’ve never seen a 189 watt bulb. Perhaps this was used in street lights or in commercial settings where energy savings was important.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Stop the lamp bans!

Yep, it was intended for the street lights where lumens rating was more important than the wattage rating.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
