You can see this has a wreath filament by some sort of projection onto the inside of the bulb. Normally the filament shadows itself and makes a dark image of itself, but here it is actually brighter!

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

That "\\\\\\\\_/" shape is "2HE(2)", is the "high efficiency", coiled coil partial wreath...very common, to use the G.E. code, "cc9" which requires use of a "look-up" table.

By contrast this has a 5LC or 6LC single coil wreath. We had the Ensign brand here...a rather mysterious brand which seemed "sort of allied somewhere between Crompton and Thorn". Here is Oz, they had their own plant in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick....now demolished and a bottle shop/"off-license" built on the site. Makes me wonder where the plant would nave been in the U.K.?

What sort of coating does this have....it has the "onion-skin/hammer-tone" look of the hot spray enamel process which only Crompton at Guiseley and G.E.C. at Wembley could do as far as I am aware so I wonder is this sourced from either of them or did they have their own plant?

The bulb shape of this is interesting too...a PS or "Pear Shape" bulb that has a cone as its lower "hemisphere"......a mold the same exact shape as this was used at the Angel Road plant in Edmonton.
