Hi there,

The first edition of this lamp had a pressed tungsten filament.

The Volt lamp factory is established in 1909 and closed in 1999.
Since 1979 it belongs to the Philips company.

Hello mr/mrs Ash,

This filament is a kind of squirrel cage type, but instead of vertical is it horizontal and flat.

I collect for thirty years now, and this is my first one in all these years.
It has a broken filament but it is almost a hundred years old.

Best regards,

Makes for quite good light distibution forward then asno part of the filament is hiding the rest of it. Is this a projection lamp ? or just general purpose lighting ?

Mr. Ash,

It is a sort of projection lamp.
It was used in homes above the table to get a better light spreading, but als above billiards etc.

Sounds like before the invention of reflector bulbs that we have now

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Very interesting example and I would say very rare thanks for sharing.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.

Hi,

Many years ago I heard something about this lamp, but I never thought I would have one in my collection.
They must be very scarce.
I also have a small book about the history of the lamp factory who made it. (Volt, Tilburg)
In the first World War a ship full with lamps of this factory is torpedoed in sight of the english coast.

A few years ago I bought about two hundred lamps from another (radio) collector.
This lamp was one of them.
Lucky me, but it has a broken filament.
