More Awesome Vintage Bulbs From Globe Electric!

by Andrea

You may recall my post from a few weeks ago about the fantastic vintage-style bulbs that I found, made by Globe Electric.  Globe Electric contacted me and was kind enough to send me some more of the bulbs, including some that I hadn’t been able to find locally.  These ones are just as fantastic as the others, take a look!

This is the Squirrel Cage type bulb, which was one of the types I hadn’t been able to find locally.

Here it is lit up – once again, this bulb does not disappoint.  I love the cool look of the filament inside.

I decided to put it in my entryway fixture (which is the only original fixture that was remaining in my house when I bought it!).  I love how you can still see the cool filament through the glass cover.

They also sent me some of the Radio Tube style bulbs, which I was pretty excited about since I was hoping to find those for my bedroom lamps.

Here it is in my bedroom lamp.  Once again, I am loving the look.  These would be fantastic if you had this style of lamp, but the covers were perhaps missing or broken.

However, if you do have the cover, once again it is neat how you can still see a hint of filament through it.

I also came across these ones in my local Canadian Tire which I hadn’t noticed before.

I love the bit on the back of the package about your life no longer being “ruled by the rise and the fall of the sun”!

The helix patterned filament is very cool in this one – these bulbs would look fantastic in a vintage chandelier type fixture!

 

If you’re looking for a retro touch for your lighting, do definitely check these out!  I have seen them at Canadian Tire and Superstore locally, and they are also for sale on Amazon.com.  Also, you can check them out further on Globe Electric’s website.

    Home Hardware carries these and the ones from the first post too. Even if a particular store doesn’t stock they can order them, I have in the past. I’ve seen these on a lot of the main street businesses where I live since they’re mostly turn of the century buildings.
