Very nice set. The other set of Satin Brights that you have listed are older. The paint on them is a little different.

I like old Christmas lights too. Have yall ever seen the fluorescent Christmas lights? How the heck do they work if they are truly fluorescent? They usually seem to be in a set of 7 and made by Sylvania. I see them on E-Bay from time to time.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

I have seen fluorescent Christmas light somewhere at the Internet, but never physically seen one. I dunno how it is powered to give off fluorescence on the coating. Neon? Argon?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I have a couple of them. They glow very faintly in pastel colors. I don't know how they work but I think they are actually more like a neon bulb with a fluorescent phosphor coating on the bulb.

I realize this post is old but if your still looking... The sylvania fluorescent Christmas bulbs are neon glow lamps with phosphor coatings that create the different colors. The blue,green and i believe orchid have a different gas fill than the Coral, Yellow and Maize. The Maize is a yellow just a bit rarer and maybe the early version I have only ever seen 3 of them and they are somewhere in my collection/hoard. I unfortunately have seen the innards of these bulbs due to shipping mishaps. Someday I'll post a picture of this and the F90T17 end caps that I received in the mail.

John (DieselNut) has posted the rare Sylvania fluorscent light here and he even showed us the broken one showing the electrode.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Yes, rjluna2 is correct. I have since found even more. I have my entire center room of my house lined with them. Only have the one that ever got broken and that was in shipping. "Coral" seems to be the most popular color. I have never seen a "Maize"!

Really cool finds!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
