Help Identifying Lamps

Postby aristomatic » Wed Jul 13, 2016 10:43 am

hi, im new to the forum,

i dont think i can post new topic yet?

so found this thread using search function.

i have found some presume old new stock bulbs

whislt clearing out my dads stuff and when googled

didnt really come up with anything

they are stamped thorn made in england

25 watt 200-250 volts rough service

they are clear glass small about 2-3 inches length in total

with a bayonet fitting and inside is a fancy like x2 storey

filament type element.

was wondering if they were used for any specific purposes

or industry so can move them on to most interested party

they are still in thorn branded protective sleeves

many thx in advance

Its just a standard Pygmy lamp with a SBC, although Thorn ones are more sought after.

Small bayonet cap......Google is your f

but are these used for any specialised use or product

If not I suppose just put them on eBay with all the info

stamped on the bulb to make sure I list them correctly

I have some more all different I'll not waste posters time

Here with each one just list them on separate listings with

The details printed on the bulb, some really long thin ones

Maybe 6 or 7 inches long but suppose the details on the bulb

will find the right buyer. Thx for the responses much appreciated

Appears to be the 25w Rough Service (reinforced filament construction) version too. Good find! Often used as a 'headlight' in upright vacuum cleaners of the 60s and 70s. I Once had a Hoover branded GEC 25w SBC pygmy!
