RESR 15 watt candle lamp

This lamp and other same two was also a salvage from my grandma's farmhouse attic. It is 15 watt and 220 - 230 volt. NOW, I don't know is it my luck or what, but all three were working when I got them. I tried all three of them in one light. What happened? All three flashed brightly and all burned out. Even the breaker tripped. I checked carefully before turning them on, and it said on the base 220 volts! I don't know why bad things happen to good people.

Great grandma said, these lamps were used to dimly light up the old chicken coop in the farmhouse. They were left overnight to keep the chickens a bit warmer in winter.

Treat yourself to a Variac ( eBay ) with one of these which is a variable transformer you can slowly wind the voltage up and avoid blowing the lamp, another method is to make a poor mans variac which is simply a lamp wired in series to you testing lamp, use a low wattage first 15w and then go higher with the wattage...less chance of blowing your lamps....peter

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
