Incandescent Gifts from Nicksfans

Incandescent Gifts from Nicksfans

Click to view full size image

Here's a nice batch of old stock incandescents from my friend and fellow LG member, Nick (Nicksfans) who shops at a ReStore in my region with excellent incandescent selections.

L to R: 70 watt GE Miser, 60 watt GE 1+ Year with brass base, 25 watt GE short neck A19, and 75 watt GE double life.

All four lamps are made in the former Winchester, VA plant. The 70 watt GE Miser completes my collection of grey etch Misers with this etch style. I remember the brass base GE's very well, having gone through many back between 2006-2008. The short neck 25 watt bulb has a center support for the horizontal filament, much better build quality than GE's modern versions from Hungary.

Thank you Nick!

It looks like the first half of 1987 or the first half of 1997. I’m guessing 1987 because the filament is supported.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Thanks, Camden.

I was trying to figure out when did these General Electric's 25 Watts have regular necked A19 shaped bulb.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Looking at these light bulbs πŸ’‘ bring back fond memories from my light bulb collecting days back in the 1960s then in the early 1970s I began taking notice of and collecting fluorescent light fixtures and fluorescent bulbs and things were never to be the same ,

I still have my incandescent light bulbs though just not as many as fluorescent, Then in the mid 1990s a friend
Struck my interest in mercury vapor fixtures such as widelite , Stebber and Hubbel, Now I’m really in trouble,
Oh geez and now it’s vintage street lights to add to all this 😜πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚ not to mention I love induction lights as well,
