After using a ceramic glazed finish, Westinghouse at some point in the '60s I believe switched to a plastic coating on the outside of the bulbs, like this one. Bulbs of this type can be found in either pristine, like new condition, with the plastic intact, or with the finish dried out and cracked (alligatored).

One distinguishing characteristic of Westinghouse C-7 and C-9 Christmas bulbs was the use of a C-9 filament (shaped like a sime-circle) versus the much more common C-7A zig-zag filament. These were more durable and less susceptible to bulb failure from filament sagging and arcing.

Yep, Here is this specimen I posted it here at Westinghouse Clear Christmas Light

Check out the older bulb with staggered support at Westinghouse Opaque Coated through the cracked/chipped paint

I sure have seen such failure as the stress point at the top of the filament support shorting to the opposite side of the circuit connection causing to overload the filament.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
