MAZDA-GENERAL ELECTRIC RED 25 WATT

MAZDA-GENERAL ELECTRIC RED 25 WATT

Click to view full size image

I have tons of these red glass bulbs from my grandmother. The date code on this particular stem press is something like 45, underscored 25, and B0 (or O) they're hard to read.

These emit a nice red light that the camera does no justice. These aren't the cheapie Chinese painted crap that I'm used to seeing.

Thats a nice find with real natural coloured glass bulb! B0 means 120V, 25 means the power in watts, and 45 is the date code according to the chart here. So probably September 1943 or 35. If it really is an underscore under the 25, then it was made at Nela Park. However that would be pretty rare since they primarily made new developments. Check if there are small dots either side of this, which would indicate one of the other factories.
