1500-2000w GLS Lamp

1500-2000w GLS Lamp

Click to view full size image

Just got this very large lamp with original box from good old eBay, There is no maker on it or the box, and the paper label which will not be remove gives no clue to maker. I have my own thoughts and it may have been made by Atlas or Omega...just got a gut feeling. Any comments welcome please.

Further info, I have looked through the history on this type of lamp and see many members have this one right down to the label, which really should not be removed as this will decrease the value of this lamp. e.g. toys are worth much more if sold with their original boxes as collectors like to see that.

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

According to standard size of large incandescent bulbs and filament shape, it is supposed to be a 2000W vintage light bulb. Very beautiful and rare piece!

Hi . as seen many light bulbs. for the measurements that you see, I think it's a 1500w specimen, I have it in 2000w and they all reach 37 cm by 20 wide. which I think is an exemplary atlas of 1500w.
