Philips "Infraphil" B22-3 PAR38 heat lamp

Philips "Infraphil" B22-3 PAR38 heat lamp

Click to view full size image

Another recent Ebay find. This lamp was sold as a spare for the Philips "Infraphil" heat lamp fixtures, that used a B22-3 socket (that looks very strange on a PAR38 lamp, with an odd skirted base). Does anyone know in which plant this was made? I think this lamp is from the early 60s and I don't think Philips's Weert factory was open yet. (Edit: this could be a very early lamp made there) I really like the box art for this lamp.

Some great photos there! I like that fitting too, has a very 50s-60s futuristic look to it.

Yes, it was a UK-specific model, none of the others sold elsewhere in the world had the chrome "bling"

Always loved the artwork on these old Philips Boxes...I recall having a brawl at school when I was in Grade 2 (1972) over one of these!

Its got that dominoes and dashes code (that decodes to November 1961) that Philips stopped using in December 1963.

I have Weert opening in 1961, but don't know which month...I'd say this is from the "White Lady" plant in Eindhoven Centrum. Might have been a while before PAR production moved to Weert...but funnily enough I don't recall ever seeing a PAR I knew came from the White Lady...so it probably is Weert, but before they started using plant symbols and letter-number date codes in 1964 (My birth year.)

My "gut instinct" goes with Weert....but lamps made during the gradual decentralization from Eindhiven in the '60's can be a real bother to "date and locate".

This lamp came out with a number of faceplate pressings and etch styles and I believe this has the earliest of both suggesting it was made on a newly set up line at Weert.

There was an E27/39 x 51 capped version, but they are really rare....the 13373B/479

13373 Lamp Type
F B22d-3/39 x 45 base
473 Face plate red colour.

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

No point of it goes in a hole when I "croak"...best to toss it around!
