Modern Taiwanese Knockoff Starburst Bulbs

Modern Taiwanese Knockoff Starburst Bulbs

Found these at an moving sale, the top 4 are unfortunately EOL and bottom two stil work. On the EOL ones, I was able to wiggle the inner clear C7 bulbs out of the glass star covers as they were held by some sticky adhesive, like an rubber cement and reuse them on like C7 Christmas bulbs. These are the possible 1980s or 90s era knockoffs to the ones that were made by GE in the 50s and 60s and those are very hard to find today. They still make these bulbs today and online bulb retailers such as 1000 bulbs carry them.

Thanks Robert! Was surprised that the dead bulbs came out easily, kinda highly doubt that be easy on the old original GE ones from the 60s should one of us ever find one of those.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!
