GE frosted pygmy bulb

GE frosted pygmy bulb

Click to view full size image

At the time when Bunnings were almost exclusively selling GE brand lamps, they had clear and frosted pygmy bulbs. It was my first encounter with the frosted type as I had only ever seen clear or red. I have seen other colours available elsewhere but they were rare. Now they stock Philips in clear only. In Australia they were more commonly known as pilot lamps.

Well done - the frosted 'Pygmy' (aka 'Pilot') lamps were fairly rare - clear and red in bayonet base seemed popular. I have a number of them in different colours, bases and voltages. I had no inkling that so many variants were in use.

Not special to me at all. I've seen numerous frosted pigmy 15W incandescent lamps in appliance here in Israel.

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 230V, 50hz country.

I wish I had bought some spares before Bunnings and GE Lighting parted company

Say 'O' for an Osram, think about tonight today (old advertising jingle)

We do have all of our own 'oh well' when these specific model are no longer being made. We will never know when a specific model/technology design stop there literally.

That is why I usually buy them in pairs
