This is very early and very unusual! Effectively the lamp is hard-wired and has no real base. Interesting glass tubes inside to stiffen support.

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

It is the most expensive lamp in the collection. (financial)
I bought it from a friend who stopped collecting and sold out most of his lamps.
I had to have it because it is my first lamp with this "open system," completed with an extern base.
I have some other small lamps with platinum eyes, but all without the original socket.

Wow, looks like the price has gone up.

This is as a direct consequence of us collectors "educating" the masses with sites such as this and our own websites. Before the internat age most people out ther would not really know what this is...but now they know the age, the place of creation and in some cases the length of production run...and set their prices accordingly.

I predicted, 30 years ago that my favorite activity would eventually become a rich man's game....that time has come to pass!!

You are very right . Prices are abusive. Shipments too. At this rate only rich people can afford to buy old light bulbs. I am making a huge effort buying. Because I only see that prices do not stop rising. it's now or never !!! Future generations may not have a large collection. partly because there are few light bulbs left and prices too! . I only regret not having started before. Now it's a little late ... it's also true that we are to blame for informing both the sellers on these sites ...

The semicondictor lighting revolution is sweeping all else away...I prophesied it back in 2006 when I appeared on National Television.

I have decide to stop with buying lamps/lightbulbs on Ebay.
Sometimes the item is cheap but the sending costs a small fortune.
I think I was lucky to buy lamps some years ago being cheap and sending costs low.
Now I only spend money on lamps who are really scarce/rare.
Just like this Sunbeam lamp.
I bought it from a friend for a good price but not so expensive as the one on Ebay at the moment.

You buy a piece of history.
There is less material, some glass and some metal and a vacuum. Thats all.
But the efforts to make such a beatiful piece and the date of manufacturing, these facts move me to continue collecting, but on a small scale.
Not quantity but quality.

Over all those years of collecting I have found some fantastic items about lighting.
Not only lamps but also sockets etc.

There are still wishes but my brother told me once: You get what you deserve. When it cross your path.

I agree Wieger....selling/transporting rare lamps has a not insignificant risk of destruction during transport due to careless handling...for this reason I minimize E-Bay purchases to the absolutely essential, high value items.


One thing I like about Dutch people....they have great respect for engineering history.

Here are some videos I have been watching recently....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a05-r0VcCZQ "Marble Machine" on Town, (Utrecht) Carillion .

It is true that shipping is always a risk. Very big because packages are treated to kicks. but you have been collecting for many years and before it was easier to find a lamp just around the corner. Now it is more difficult to find good lamps and if it is not online and shipping I do not think you can barely have a good collection. My collection comes almost all from Germany. So what can collectors do that we do not have the advantage of having a country rich in lamps such as America, England, Germany and Holland. What we can do is take risks because there is no other choice. It is to risk or have nothing. I wish it were easy but it depends on the country. In Spain I rarely find good lamps. and if I find it, it is better for me to bring from Germany. Therefore collectors who have 30 years collecting have lived the best years to collect. and that must also be said. future generations can only collect the led. I congratulate you friends for the good collection you have. I like very much

Very True Daniel. The time of the electric lamp will come and go, just like everything else and the fact that we just happen to be born and live much of our lives at that same time in history and happrened to develop a passion for the electric lamp can develop easily into a very deep and philosophical conversation about "life, the universe and everything" and our fortuitous, (or not) minuscule place in it all.


I often toy/play with the anti idea (in my mind)of the bright incandescent lamp above someone's head as a symbol of a EUREKA! moment, the bright idea popping into their head, but rather how our decedents, tens or hundreds of generations from now will see it as the symbol of our stupidity and greed...of how we discovered all the GeoCarbon, (Coal and Oil) lain down during the Carboniferous Era...and promptly and greedily BURNT IT ALL in 200 years to power those very electric lamps and stuffed up the planet for ourselves and most other species for the next half a million years in the process.

Dave, (Silverliner) asked me if I thought LED's would still be around in 5000 years! You can read here what my answer was!

I think the same. but I only feel special appreciation for incandescent lamps. I know they are not the most efficient. but his nostalgia and history make me sick. If today the collection began, not even half would be possible to find. I have many bombillad gls but they are old and newer gls. but the money has been paid 9 euros a piece at 15 euros in 4 years. It is becoming unfeasible. The incandescent lamp should be considered a luxury lamp today. globe collector I would like to know information about my philips jaeguer lamp of 2000w. Is it common with that extraction? I haven't seen others the same.

You have to define the word "Common" more precisely.

Jaeger lamps would be about one in every 50,000 to one in every half million lamps depending upon which part of the World you are in.

Hi . I mean with little "common" that the bulb seems strange. I bought it in a house that sells antiques in Germany. I leave the link to watch https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=topn&cat=-5079&pos=1&pid=153254 . https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=5079&pos=58&pid=153252
