Julius Pintsch.....these are bloody hard to find there in Australia....I have only two on my collection of over 12,000...G95 externally frosted squirrel-cage lamps with the word "Pintsch" in clear around the equator....beautiful things to both look at and feel.

Would not happen to have a more precise plant location for this than just "Germany"?

Interesting number "8739" on the press...are the seals platinum, (silvery) or Dumet, (Red).

Platinum...pre 1912-13 1912-13

Colin Garfield Fink developed Dumet at G.E. Scenectady in 1912, other lamp manufacturers rapidly paid the Patent rights to use it too to avoid the expensive Platinum.

Ductile drawn tungsten, developed by William Cooldige around 1910, also at Scenectady replaced Just and Hannamann's sintered tungsten just slightly earlier.

Ductile tungsten lamps have both "spiders" of supports comprised of thin hooks and the filament was a single piece of wire...the older squirted or sintered lamps have the filament in many short sections with a "Lead-In crimp" at each end or lots of "hairpins" with fine wire hooks at the top and thick leas-in like wires at the bottom spider.

I'll try to find a picture of such a lamp... Here's Mine but it is not a good example....other members do have better examples but I can't locate any with the search function.

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