The ES is probably the initials of the manufacturer, not a date code.

Old school FTW!

I tend to agree that "ES" identifies the TRUE manufacturer. All this re-badged stuff, particularly from China, is some of the most challenging stuff to find out where it was really made.
As I mentioned to Robert on another post, I am compiling a list of lamp plants, which includes their latitude and longitude down to one tenth of a second of arc, a resolution of a few meters, (about 8 feet) on the actual surface of the Earth. I found a Korean plant, just one of many, called Jae Kyung. Here in Australia Jae Kyung's lamps appear branded as (and hidden behind) Crompton, Nelson and Sylvania, but as randacnam7321 says, they (sometimes)have "JK" stamped into the base rim. Korean lamps actually have quite a unique character and those with the nearest character are old Japanese lamps, like the Kyokko brand or some Chinese lamps.
What ultimately gives a lamp its character is the plant where it is from and the team working at that plant and just how they leave their mark on the lamp. The re-badger, "Home Accents" in this case, leave no impression at all although this type of small Asian incandescent is still THE MOST DIFFICULT of challenges to truly identify. Asking "Home Accents" where they got them from would probably bring fourth the typical arrogant response..."We have confidentiality ageeements in place".

I use this web site.... http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html to get the co-ordinates and return to the exact spot later, but I also have Google Maps/Earth and Wikimapia open too. I use Google Earth just for general location and to see if anybody has placed specific listings. I use street view, if it works, to get one form of ultimate confirmation, if not, I try Wikimapia to see if anybody has listed it there.

I feel that it is important to locate and identify these plants because many of them are on the verge of closing, if not closed already (mainly due to the advent of solid state lighting and Government bans on older, more traditional technology).

So I urge you to do the same as me, you may have some local knowledge I have no access to which will allow you to identify (the site) of a recently closed and demolished plant near to where you live which would be much more difficult for me. And once they are gone, they are much more difficult to identify.

I'll give some examples....(I will give decimal co-ordinates because these can be "copy-and-pasted" directly into the i-touch map form....

Jae Kyung, Yongin, Seoul, Korea
Lat +37.136045 Long +127.211986
Web site.. http://www.jklight.com/index.htm

Becauise they concentrate on I.R. lamps, their products are largely exempt from Government bans, so they are safe......least for now.


Fostoria Incandescent Lamp Co., 530 South Poplar Street, Fostoria, Ohio. U.S.A.
Lat +41.152031 Long -83.410960

This is an example of a long dead and closed plant, but, amazingly the building still stands and has the signage to prove it! An lovely piece of preserved history because it is in a small out-of-the-way town where nothing ever changes.

General Electric, "Euclid Plant", 1814 East 45th Street, Chuyahoga, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.
Lat +41.508485 Long -81.655836

Example of what we are loosing, so recently closed it is still listed on Google, but the lower floor windows have "cliplock" fastened over them and doorways have been bricked-up. Very soon, this one will be forgotten. The urban decay is very evident.

Sylvania-Osram, 1193 Broad Street, Central Falls, Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A.
Lat +41.895764 Long -71.387554

Example of one just about to close, it makes a product which is subject to bans and its community is in a real mess. BUT, this is a historically important plant, it was the Columbia Tantalum plant in 1907!

Welch-Allyn, Jordan Road, Scanatales Falls, New York State, U.S.A.
Lat +42.994778 Long -76.458442

Web Site... http://www.welchallyn.com/default.htm
Lamps... http://www.welchallyn.com/promotions/oem_halogen_lighting/default.htm

No chance this one will fold any time soon. The area is so snobby, street view does not work. They can look at us, but not us at them! This plant and the nearby head office and reception center/centre to the south east of the plant have such a wide range of products and such a cliquey client base, they will never fold any time soon. This is the polar opposite to G.E.'s "Euclid" plant.

Venture Lighting, Plot D6, Unit II, Zone-B, Madras Export Processing Zone, Tambaram, Chennai, Tanil Nadu, India
Lat +12.940577 Long +80.116652

Note that Madras is now called Chennai.

This is the type they don't really want you to find but take over jobs from our ailling communities and control and exploit the locals, just check this one out on Wikimapia. I have listed it, but a worker at the plant has made some rather unhappy comments too... When you look this one up in Google Maps, the marker is placed hunderds of meteres away at the edge of a road and forest. This one was difficult to nail. and I have lamps from this one in my collection. It will probably fold as L.E.D.'s really get going. Note the the long, cryptic address hidden inside the Export Processing Zone "gated community". Look up MEPZ on Google and read their web site carefully. You'll get a guist of just how much they are trying to exploit the locals and prevent any industrial action to give them a better deal.


(New) Zealand Electric Lamp Manufacturer's Association, (ZELMA), Corner of Tauhinu Road and Byron Street, Mirramar, Wellington, New Zealand.
Lat -41.313177 Long +174.815354

Opened in 1940, closed in 1999 and demolished in 2000, this was one of the much more challenging ones. Despite its geographical closeness to me in Hobart, Tasmania, c2000Km across "the ditch" (Tasman Sea) to the west, no trace of it remains. All you see is a suburban street corner despite the world famous Movie FX studios, Weta Studios, being just a few hundred meteres away. This is an example of how rapidly they can be erased.

Example Lamp from this now, non existant plant...

If any of you wish to move this page to the forum, feel free. I will eventually list all 250 odd plants I have identified there for all to see and comment on. But if you know of any recently closed or endangered plants in your immediate area or not, feel free to "nail them bu the ears" to our pinboard!

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Thanks, Andrew I have this page updated. I'll go through the other bulbs with similar stamp at the bottom of the cap as I can.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Today, I brought another set of C7 Replacement Bulbs set with same blister pack. The only difference I found that the date stamp at the package indicates 06052014 which translates June 5th, 2014. Another thing the stamp at the bottom of the cap of these bulbs says 'S' and 'E' between the bottom contact. At least the cost of these replacement bulb has not changed

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I have no idea. Once Philip (Lampman) sent me this wonderful Bell 7w Nightlight Spare Bulbs (Pink) and (Blue) from England. Perhaps you can try to find and buy it at amazon.com web site

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
