Champion Bug Lamp 60w

Champion Bug Lamp 60w

Recent eBay find in an bulb lot. My first Champion bulbs with the diamond logo etching and I believe these would be made before the 1970s before Champion evolved into ITT lighting. Also got a 3rd bulb (not shown) while digging through the package.

Great find! I've never seen a Champion brand lamp. Looks like a nice golden-yellow light color

Thanks! Think I had seen one or two in the past when I was younger.

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

They are getting more and more rarer and most of those are likely from the 1960s and before. I may had seen one back in the 70s in some lamp likely at an flea market and wish I would of grabbed it then. Had been after any Champion samples for several years now. I think those may had been intended for commercial or industrial use and sold by certain distributors about the same way how Duro-Test bulbs were sold and wouldn’t think Champion was sold in retail outlets which is making them difficult to find for us.

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