Verd-a-ray 25w clear bulbs possibly made in Holland

Verd-a-ray 25w clear bulbs possibly made in Holland

Click to view full size image

eBay find, from a while back. They are early 1970s vintage. The bulbs have Philips design features, so they were made after Philips took over VAR and closed its plant in Toledo, Ohio. They have similar small etches as those on the Norelcos made in Holland, so they may have been made there also. No country of origin nor factory ID symbol was found. The bulbs still look well made though.

They don't look like Weert lamps to me Dave, they still look North American to my eyes.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!
