GE 250V 1500W Incandescent Lamp

GE 250V 1500W Incandescent Lamp

Click to view full size image

Here is a 250V 1500W incandescent lamp by GE. I am intrigued that it is a 250V lamp rather than 120V but still with a mogul E39 cap rather than the GES (E40) cap used here, so it is obviously designed for use in the USA. Where would 250V incandescent lamps be used..? Unfortunately, there is no visible date code on this lamp, either on the etch or as is common on GE lamps, on the stem press. Can anyone help, possibly based on the packaging..?

By the way, this lamp has been named Thomas II in honour of the 1000W one we had that got broken last year :-(

Thanks have to go to Andy (Photonicinduction) for sending me this :-)

The filament construction looks like single coiled C-7A with 5 support.

Probably intended for the area that supplies 240 Volts main

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Yeah, I bought a 1kW mercury lamp from him on eBay and this was in the box with it..! He's been selling off some of his collection, I think.

It'll be all right in the end, and if it isn't all right, it isn't the end  Smiley
