This was featured in the forum, with much interest, I think and yes I put the first bid in as this was on ebay and had my thoughts it would go for a high price as it was shown on the forum, Okay I waited to when the auction was nearly over (few seconds) and put a large bid in and won it and under just £200 I think my bid was for £301 so I was well pleased. I think the seller has another one and one that is darkened so keep an eye open...no I will not bid for the others that would be greedy. The lamp is made by Franklin and there is another lamp shown on the gallery a tungsten lamp with the name Franklin Mazda. This company was bought out by Edison many years ago from info I got from Google. The construction is totally different from normal letter lamps and the insulation is a mica square with the C cut out the other electrode is on the rear of the mica plate. To orietate the bulb position when screwed in there is a spring attached to the centre contact of the base.....Any further info would be well received...and one final thought was there any connection with Benjamin Franklin who made clocks lightening rods bifocals and flew that kite with a key....and of cause helped in the countries formation.

Ye gods that was a bit expensive, no way could I ever afford that, but glad someone here did get it.
