you should post that Beauty on the gallery

that oldie with a Thompston-houston base
it was use back then to avoid Patent  infringements
with Edison bases lamps back in late 1880s  to
1920s  back them it was  a mess as there were
few bases around that time and it like having a format
war on  lamp bases.  until Edison and Swan base style
took over.

No funkybulb, the base you see in the pics above is called the Westinghouse base. It simply snapped into the socket as you pushed it in. The Thompson-Houston base had a female screw thread in the bottom of the base. Both were common alternatives to the Edison base.

Savsav, your bulb looks to date to the 1890s sometime. Very nice bulb, looks new old stock or close so. I agree, you should post it on L-G.

 Thanks Silverliner!  Smiley
I knew that the first answer was not correct for the base of the lamp and. I decided to wait from my colleagues for the correct and more detailed answer!
I have been collecting lamps since 1984. Here is part of my collection: http://ixbt.photo/?id=user:1004332  Wink
I'm sorry there is no at this point in time to start posting photos of my lamps on this forum.
Thank!
