I don't know.
I took it over from a friend who had it in his collection for many years.
He stopped collecting light bulbs and sold out most of them.

It was always a wish of me to have a lamp of this system including the socket.
I have a few small lamps but without the "sockets" so this is the first complete lamp in the collection.
It fills a gap in the collection.

Now I have an old gaslamp from that period, a Nernst fixture, the Liliput arc lamp and this big Carbon lamp.
All around 1900.
Four different ways of lighting.

Good to see that this nice lamp made it into safe hands! I also had the chance to inspect it recently, and believe it is much earlier - I would put it around 1890. I will have to do some further research about Sunbeam but am pretty sure they must have been shut down by the Ediswan patent litigation in England around 1892-94.

Thanks James.
I have another Sunbeam lamp, but a very small one.
Loaded up some years ago on the L.G.
That lamp has two platinum eyes, one on each end and an exhaust. It measures ca. 7.5cm lenght, wide 3.5cm
It is in this same gallery.
Sunbeam is that a brand from the UK?

I Agree with James,

This beautiful Light Bulb appears to be from the early to mid 1890s,

Wow, Very nice 👍

I agree too, I have a book with a wood block print a very similar lamp in it, and it is dated 1902. All the lamps depicted in the book are Ediswan from Ponders End...so as James says...this probably pre-dates them.

This is an extremely rare lamp Wieger...not in the league of the osmium filament, but just one step down from that. I'd say, you have one of the more interesting collections in Western Europe.

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