I like the blunt shaped C-7s (technically "indicator" bulbs) that were made by GE, Sylvania, Westinghouse/Philips, ITT, and probably others. They are similar to their Christmas ceramic C-7 cousins except that, according to some old GE lighting literature I found, the Christmas lamps were rated for about 1,000 hours whereas the indicator C-7s would last 3,000 hours. Both were 7 watts. I find this unusual since it would have been cheaper to manufacture them all on the same assembly line and just use different bulb envelopes at the end.

The story is similar with Christmas C-9s versus ceramic 10S11 sign bulbs which used brass bases and 130 volt filaments.

The ceramic on the GE and Westinghouse bulbs in general was better than that used by Sylvania.

I have these cermaic C-7s in blue, green, red, orange and white, in GE, Sylvania, Westinghouse, and the rare ITT.

I love the ones with etches on top like a bigger light bulb. Does anyone still make these?

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I don't think so. I believe they were all US-made lamps. I don't recall ever seeing any top etches once production went to Asia. Those are all stamped into the base. You'll have to look for them on eBay. They periodically come up.
