Sylvania branded 150w Red Dichroic Par lamps

Sylvania branded 150w Red Dichroic Par lamps

Click to view full size image

I had known about these for a while, they were in a lot of 5 coloured Par lamps (the rest were normal) on Facebook Local. Recently, after a bit of persuasion, I managed to get them posted and split from the lot for 13 pounds the pair. A bit out of my normal price range, although still quite reasonable given the rarity of these lamps (especially for European voltage)! These may have been made by Atlas/Thorn, as they look identical to a yellow version I have seen in another collector's gallery and look different to the USA made Sylvania examples. (Edit: assembled by British Sealed Beams Ltd. Partly owned by GEC and Thorn) They give off an awesome red light when lit, though when viewed from the side they appear yellow/orange (also when off). Both lamps work nicely although they seem a bit worn on the surface.

These are very nice.
I had an Atlas branded version in Red and Green when I was a lad, they were used occasionally for lighting the trees in the garden.

I'm always interested in exchanging lamps - message me to see what we can do! Smiley

I'd love to get some of these, but never found any at an affordable price, other than from the US, and then you get stung for shipping/import taxes

Hi Lucas, these would have been made by British Sealed Beams Ltd, a company that was jointly owned by Thorn and GEC and which produced PAR lamps for the UK market. The dichroic coated lenses were produced for them by Thorn's Leicester factory. The British coloured dichroic PAR38's are always characterised by an opaque rim around the lamp rim to block emission of unfiltered white light, as well as light of other colours which would be produced by the dichroic lens at oblique angles. Usually this was black, but sometimes metallic coloured paint was used, and in the later years the GEC lamps had transparent coloured lacquer of the same colour as the light beam. Conversely, the American-made lamps of at least GE and Sylvania had completely black painted reflectors (I've never seen a Westinghouse-made one so not sure what they used). Anyway, very nice find to pick up a couple of these!
