I found this at an architectural salvage shop here in Columbus . I believe it's N.O.S. as the center contact on the base shows no signs of ever being screwed in .

Thank You ! 600 lumens would be an awfully DIM streetlight ! Maybe 50w incandescent !

That filament is tiny!

I have the same lamp but has been used but still working, the reason for the lead in wires being so close is so that an arc can be set up if the filament blows and the other lights in the series will remain alight. Quiet a rare lamp I beleive.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.

Wonderful, I love these vertical filaments, we never had them here due to the higher voltage, they would have had to be too long.

Thanks Ria , I didn't even think about voltage dictating the shape of the filament . I just looked in my GE catalogs and sure enough not one of the 230v and higher incandescents have a straight filament ! I done learnt something !
