Mazda 40w Netabulbs/Silverlight Mushroom lamps

Mazda 40w Netabulbs/Silverlight Mushroom lamps

I paid 5 pounds including post for these off of Facebook local. I took a gamble on what was inside the box but luckily the 2 original lamps were still in there. I mainly bought these because of the amusing box art with the 2 bulb men on it! I think other wattages had other coloured backgrounds (40w is dark green, not sure on others) I think this box design was brought out when AEI owned the Mazda name, but was used also when Thorn took over (these are Thorn made). Later in the 80s though Thorn still used the Netabulb name but changed the box design to a much more plainer style.

I love this packaging, I have these in 60 watts with the same packaging. I also have netabulbs in 40, 100 & 150 watts but with different packaging.

Mazda lamps stay brighter longer :-)

I never really took to mushroom lamps back in the day, I suppose subconsciously it was because I don't like the (so-called) edible variety. Wouldn't mind a few more now, though (lamps, not mushrooms )

This is still a CFL- and LED-free zone!

For years I thought that the mushroom shape was the signal for a krypton filling. Seems to prove me wrong.

An interesting thought..! That shape was used for a lot of traffic signal lamps though, maybe that's where you got the idea.
