I remember when 100 watt light bulbs were large like this,

I believe around the late 1960s or early 70s they reduced the size down to what they are now,

I always thought this A21 size was more appropriate for 100w instead of the typical A19 size .

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

Wish I could determine the date on this! There isn't any "standard" looking date code in the etch, just the GE logo in the center with 100w above it, a star on either side of it and 115-125v below it. Nothing on the base and the stem press isn't visible cause of hoe the yellow goes to the base.

There is a large (1/4" tall) 35 crooked to the right of the 100w, I'm assuming it's part of the original price stamp for when it was new.

The etch is only readable with a magnifying glass and bright light and even then it's still hard to make out !

Cigar box?


my grandfather used to smoke cigars and used the empty boxes to store EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING , nuts & bolts, screws, small parts, tools, bulbs, you name it, if it fit in a cigar box, you could find it easily ! Just read the boxes, all were labeled in black magic marker with their contents !
