This came in a desk standing lamp (heat lamp) from a boot sale many years ago. Take a look at the etch, this was from Japan, who knows the maker it has a simuler ring and hooks that G-E uses with Japanese writing. This is well made reflector red glass and inside etch, any info welcome.

Is this a heat lamp or just a coloured reflector lamp?

100W is too low wattage for a reflector heat lamp. Most of them are 200W and above.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Hi thanks for all your comments, all I can say this lamp came with a lamp stand which if it was knocked over there was a cut out which turned the lamp off to prevent a fire, okay cannot say for sure whether a heat lamp I was more interested in who made this lamp which used the GE trademark? and inside etch a well made lamp with red glass.

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

This is very similar to the old logo of the Mazda division of the Tokyo Shibaura Electric Company - whose name was later abbreviated to its present form Toshiba. However the letters are slightly different on your lamp. IGE transferred its tungsten lamp technology to that company around 1910 under the Mazda service, and acquired a shareholding in its lampmaking operations. As such the Mazda brand quickly became popular in Japan. Whereas in the USA, UK and France, GE and the IGE (International GE) companies also had the circular logo with 4 or 3 tails, it seems the same was also adopted in Japan for Mazda lamps (and later also for Mazda valves and all kinds of other electrical devices). If you Google Tokyo Shibaura Mazda you will find many old lamps, valves and documents showing the same logo as your lamp. It seems to have been phased out when the Toshiba name was coined, and that took over as the main brand of the Tokyo Shibaura Corporation.

You're right most lamps are above 200W... But there are already small infrared reflector heating lamps with 40, 60 or a 100W

There are special small reflector lamps for use in lava lamps... Not sure if these technically count as heat lamps though!

100W in a lava lamp would get a bit on the warm side

Hi thanks again, your comments about the name was really interesting James, I did wonder whether Toshiba had something to do with it as I have a catalog dated 1991 by Toshiba in Japanese where that symbol is shown but with different wording. I also remember that symbol being used in Spain on Traffic Lights. It would seem that Toshiba was tied up with GE in the old days as they were Japans oldest lamp maker under it old name.

Just had a very close look at the etch and it could compare to the one in my catalog this was under 2 dates 1910-20 and 1960 with the old written Toshiba name.....once again many thanks.

Thats interesting Peter! My Toshiba catalogues only go back to 2003 and this is not shown. Can you maybe upload a photo of the page?

The old lampmakers in Spain also fell under the control and ownership of IGE until shortly after WW2, but I haven’t seen one with the circular logo with tails. Do you know which one it was? Maybe ELVA or Lamparas-Z?

Thanks James, do not know what that company was in Spain but it was on a traffic light fixture, but that was a long time ago. Your info very useful as you know I am interested in the history and did not know the Mazda name was used in Japan, this lamp must be 1950 or before the cap has transparent blue insulators and looks old in brass. and before they used the Toshiba name, nice also its inside etch.
