The Thorn glowbottle starters have quite a distinctive shape, they were made on a converted machine which previously used to make AG3 photoflash bulbs with the same style of bulb and seal. Thanks to that heritage of unbelievably massive high volume production, it was probably the fastest glowbottle production line anywhere in the world.

Did they stop the glowbottle production ? It think, Thorn is General Electric today...

GE indeed took over Thorn’s lampmaking business in 1991, and the starter production continued under GE until 2000, when they switched to Chinese sourced starters.
