Fluorescent fixture with E27 socket Speedlight

Hello everybody. My first upload..Find this fixture on the Internet and buy it because I've never seen this style before. Also don't know what factory made it and what year it was made. I can't open it without damage it.
I've buy it with four Philips T12 lights. Two with dark end caps made A7 so it must be January 67.
Does anybody know this kind of fixtures, factory and when it's made?

Welcome to L-G. That's a retrofit kit to convert existing incandescent fixtures. Yes the lamps are January 1967. I don't have information on the fixture because I am in the USA, but we had similar ones made in the 40s and 50s.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Wow,

Thats a very special fixture you've got there.
I had this one once but give it away to a friend of mine.
On or two years ago there was one on the Dutch auction side "Marktplaats".
I tried to buy it again, but it was to expensive.

B.t.w., Wecome to the L-G.
I see we live in the same country.

Different with the screw in threads mounted directly to the strip.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

@lampje Thanks countrygenoot shame that you give it away, its nostalgic:) Maybe this fixture is the one from Marktplaats site, ive buy it there 2 weeks ago on that site for 40€ including sending it to me. It's just how much a fool will give for it yes. I was thinking, not more as 20€ but I failed ;p

@Socketgeek63 Yeah, you're right! I didn't notice it but now I see, it's very close to the pins from the tube light

Well, I gave it to a friend of mine who lives about two kilometers from my place, so that is very near.
At that time I wasn't interested in lighting. (not in TL lamps)
I also gave him a box full with projection lamps. These things happens.
Over the years I have collected a few TL lamps, fixtures and accessoiries: http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=3885

I was looking on Google and fill in the Octrooi number, but no results so far.

Yeah, try that also with no results. Octrooi is Patent in English. But there must be a data base somewhere I think. But it says Octrooi so I think it must be made in Holland, Belgium or maybe Germany..?

Welcome ( Welkom) SOX man on this site!!! You are from the South part of Holland, I'm from the North part where the boat leaves to Texel. Nice fixture and lamps?? Are the lamps with or without cathode guard?? Are the starters S2 from Philips?? I've seen this fixture too on Marktplaats before ( withs some Sylvania lamps also??)

Thank you TL buis. Nice to hear there a few Dutch people here also.
The lamps inside this fixture have cathode guards. The strarters are from Philips and S2, buy it whit these tube in the original Phillips hose and in the fixture were Sylvania Daylight T12 if uploaded and the Philips T12 with the reflector. So it could be that's the same fixture that you saw on Marktplaats before.

Hi SOXman a very warm welcome from me hope you enjoy your time here. This is a very nice looking retrofit fluoresant fixture there the endcaps coloured like this (brass) suggest/extremely likely that it is a 1960s retrofit fixture for incandescent lights, commonly the ceiling rose ones

I've got a fluoresant fixture with the same principle but its way more modern (bought in 2004) and has a BC/B22 base as I'm from England. The fixture is made by Eterna, heres the link

@Flurofan96 thanks man! But you mean the end caps from the tube light or the fixture? The tube lights aren't the original ones I think because I have buy it also with 2 other lights. So total of 4 lights.
