Another view of the Mazda lamp. It's not my lamp. On display at a supply house. It's the business owner's collection.

Hopefully they will never sell it to anyone, so its there for everyone to go look.

I hope that a few of these or the F90T17`s or F100T17`s show up on e-bay some time soon.

The early 1940`s General Electric mazda T17`s in my opinion are some of the most beautiful & impressive fluorescent bulbs ever made .

I`m having a hard time getting over how beautiful this bulb is - UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!

It is nice that it is in the display. I agree with vintagefluorescent. It seems people are realizing the collectivity of vintage lamps and fixtures. It is nice because they get preserved, but it kinda sucks for us because the price gets driven up. At least maybe it will keep unique lamps like this one from getting trashed.

Looks right at home with the Edison era incandescent lamps! It'd say the F65T17 is rarer than an 1890 Edison lamp. If one goes on sale, you are talking about quite a bit of dough! BTW, this lamp dates to around '41.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I was just thinking wouldn`t it be nice to have the 2 lamp fixture that this goes in with these bulbs in it

I agree Dave , I pretty much have an opinion on what this bulb is worth & if one does make it to e-bay alot of sellers will take note after the auction has ended.

Yes, General Electric makes one called "F96PG17" that is a 215 watt VHO tube with unique "dimples". They also make (or made) 72", 60" and 40" versions of it.

OH GOD! I am DROOLING! I dream of finding a bunch of F65 fixtures in an old abandoned factory with lamps in them plus spare lamps! You gotta wonder why these are so rare---they MUST have sold a bunch of fixtures, or DID they? My 1942 W.W. Grainger catalog shows these and the fixtures! This is incredible--I WANT ONE SO BAD!

@ricksbulbs:
Same here!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
