The Former Transparent Green S14 Bulb

The Former Transparent Green S14 Bulb

Click to view full size image

My mother was going over my late father's nightstand drawer and came across this specimen. The only thing that was left on the transparent coated bulb is at the base which is transparent green.

Can anyone decode the date stamp at the stem: 15

I like the bulb shape.
Do you mean it was green from the manufacture and was made clear by some chemicals or mechanically? Or has your father painted it green and then made it clear again?

Possibly been exposed to outdoor weather in the same way how C7 and C9's finishes fades and wears off after a year or two? I stripped off an transparent finish several years back on an GE 25 watt colored with sister's fingernail polish and then ran hot water over the bulb, not sure if I ended up using it in bedroom light till EOL,.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!
