Crompton "Carousel" series Tri-Colour G.L.S.

Crompton "Carousel" series Tri-Colour G.L.S.

Click to view full size image

Rare Crompton "Carousel" tri-colour (Red, White and Yellow) hot spray enameled G.L.S.

Only the British would be so excessive! These must have been expensive! Would not want to break any at the county fair!

Interesting fact, duplicates of the same colour scheme have almost exactly the same pattern, so the process was under very tight control. The colours were NOT simplt randomly spoltched on!

I used to see such lamp home made from regular white GLS lamps, but not once pre-made by the lighting company.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Yes, people once sold hand-lacquered GLS here in Hobart at Salamanca Market.

These are very different though...this coating is very durable and cannot be scratched off even with a scalpel blade. It is applied by heating the bulb to very near its softening point then playing a torch flame onto the bulb into which a fine coloured glass powder has been included as a suspended dust in the air supply manifold to the flame...so tiny molten specks of glass hit the hot sticky bulb and bond to it...once it is all cooled and annealed it cannot be removed, it has become part of the bulb itself!

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

What an interesting lamp! What would this be used for?

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

As the sub-trade name, "Carousel" suggests.....!!!

Or anything else you might want, festooning up behind Windsor Castle for the Queen to sip her tea under!

I missed out on some of these, wish I'd have managed to get them, they certainly are different.

Mazda lamps stay brighter longer :-)

One interesting thing about these is that if you place two of the same colour scheme side-by-side and phase them up the same and then slowly turn them on their axis of symmetery...the splotches of colour are pretty much EXACTLY the same shape, size and position on both examples...this suggests that the hot spraying process was done by some very automated and repeatable means BUT the jet flames were arranged to give this same apparently chaotic shaped splotches each time.

Interesting! They must have had really strict quality control to get all of those to have the same color pattern.

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

They used to know how to make things in this country, now sadly it's all gone, no lamps at all made here as far as I know, I think Philips at Hamilton was the last, I may be wrong (I certainly hope so)

Same thing in the USA. Lamp manufacturers are all gone, except for GE. They still make some lamps in the Ohio area. All of the good old Philips bulbs were outsourced to China in 2014 when the Bath, NY plant closed. Westinghouse is all fake Chinese stuff too.

Philips still makes some fluorescent lamps at the Salina, KS plant.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

I was going to say that Sylvania at 825 Washington Street St. Marys Pennsylvania was still going...but I found a newspaper article that stated they closed October last year along with Jaurez in Mexico.


Outside China the semiconductor revolution is just about complete...and even inside China it could wrap up quicker than expected due to COVID-19.

Very soon all traditional lamps will be as rare as turn of the 19th century carbons. I see all lamp prices on E-Bay are sharply up.

Yep, found 'em at the bottom of a box of "junk" at an auction. I quickly hid them once I saw them. I could not be there to bid so had to get a friend to do it...thankfully he won the bid and I got the lamps.

That box of "junk" may have come from an "Ex-pat pom's" estate...I doubt they were ever sold here in Tasmania as over the shelf items, but there was a lot of interesting stuff you could buy in Hobart in the '60's and '70's that's all gone into history now.
