Vintage French light bulb

Vintage French light bulb

Here you can see a 230V 40W squirrel cage filament lamp I acquired today at a fleamerket. I got it together with a ceiling fixture for 5€. It would have Benn made in the 1920s I would guess, and it is original to the ceiling light. I think it was taken out of service not long after being put to service, as a part of the glas of the ceiling light broke.

Hi Alex, nice lamp, do you know where it was made? It looks vaguely reminiscent of an Osram lamp from Puteaux, they had these well-tensioned upper supports. Other likely producers may be Iris, Gabriel et Angenault or of course Compagnie des Lampes / FTH Mazda.

Good find,still shows these turn up at flea markets, pity I have not been to car boot sales thanks to this nasty Chinese plague.

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

Hello James, I was wrong it is not of french origin. On the lamp a rest of an etch can be found, that contained brand name and origin. Sadly that etch is out the same material as the etch on vacuum tubes, so it is water solvent and den´t survive the decades... The rest consist of the last letters of the manufacturer and production country.

For the Manufacturer it is INI or UNI I would say. For the location LAND is still visible so i would say it was made in holland.
