I need help with this lamp. Does anyone dare to assess or say what level to pay or how much to offer?

My main interest is in vintage fluorescent lighting,
But have to say that is one beautiful light bulb,

I’m in no way an appraiser for incandescent lighting but if I collected vintage incandescent light bulbs I personally might offer up to
$150-200 for it , that would be my limit but I would like to hope You can get it for less,
Very impressive to say the least and look at that nice patina on the base,

Hope this helps

thank you . It is what I thought. I am learning to value. is that he asks about 300 dorals or 320 to change. about 350 euros. It seems too much to me. for that price I give it up. I can not save this exemplary lose of buying other beautiful pieces. whatever it is that we collect the illusion that we deliver in that is what moves and motivates us.

You’re welcome,

If You can’t live without it - He might be able to work out a payment plan for You

Keep that in mind as sellers have done the same for me
On the rare expensive stuff:)

Anyway- I hope You can get it if it means a lot to You:)

P.S. ask him what he wants for it - Might be cheaper then You think ,

Good Luck!!!!

You are very right . The problem is that there are more people interested and he tells me that he will not lower the price for the moment. On Saturday I will collect 1000 osram gls and see if I can do something face to face with her. But anyway I have difficulties, more than 200 I do not plan to pay. It's what you think and I like it. Sometimes water that you do not drink, let it run. a greeting

This is a really special lamp, the construction with nuts and bolts fixed to the inner stem tube was quite unique to British Siemens, and later Thorn who took them over. Normally this design was only ever used for Lighthouse lamps having two filaments like this but arranged in X-shape. This one has one filament and a very nice side silver mirror on the bulb, it was made especially as a searchlight for ships passing through the Suez Canal. They were listed in Thorn catalogues until the 1980s as Suez Canal Lamps, very special things. Today one Chinese company still makes them but no where near as nice as this old model.

For sure its worth a lot but I would also struggle to pay more than €100 for such a thing because I do have one of similar design with the double filaments. But if I didn’t have that then like you I would be seriously considering now how much to offer for this, so if you can I would encourage you to try and work something out! These kind of rare designs really do not appear so often. And you should think of it as an investment - old lamps seem to be increasing in value faster than our rates of inflation in Europe, so you better put your money into lamps instead of keep it in the bank Then you get some satisfaction from it and if you really need the money later or find a better lamp you are willing to exchange it for, you could always sell it again

thanks James . I will try to get it for 250 euros if it does not accept. I'll let it go for the moment. nor being the situation like this in Spain. nobody throws with the money either and if I buy too expensive I will not be able to resell the lamp for an affordable price therefore I could lose money or take a considerable time to do it. good and I will tell you! thanks friends !

James that history is sure interesting, and on such a fasinating lamp by Siemens brothers.My answer when will another turn up, buy it its money in the bank and the way prices are going a very good investment. Will it go thru the post...hope not, better to be collected on such a rare item.

thanks for helping me all of you !! . I will try to negotiate the best I can if I do not wait a bit. if it was 220v it was paid without problem but being 110v it costs me a little more. Well, I'm going to write him and have him tell me. I hope to save this lamp and give a good home.

Go on buy it but I would be worried about it thru posts even double boxing would not help if they use the parcel as a football, why will it cost more if 110v anyway it would be a much heavier filament.

Well, I do not know, miguette1. but I prefer 220 volt because of a transformer. I am considering buying a variac transformer. to say that tomorrow I stayed with the woman who sells the light bulb. I will personally drive to go see it and pick it up. the safest thing is that I'm going to acer case I'll pay 350 euros. I do not play. I'll work a couple of extra Saturdays. It is already reserved for me.

Good luck that sounds good, I would not even try to light it you would need a hefty variac...put it into your collection, really glad its not going thru the post you can test if it works by a ohm meter.

Hi . First I'll take a look at the lamp to verify that it's in order. If he does not convince me, I do not buy it. but if the filament is not bluish it would be a great piece
