It's always exciting when you've seen something no one seems to know anything about--and after searching for months, finally find out what the heck "that thing was".

I went to an estate sale back in January - it was largely a wash out - but in the bottom of some overpriced light parts/Christmas light strings, was a strangely shaped--and unfortunately broken light bulb; the parts were wrapped up in old newspapers from the late 20's.

Today--purely by accident--I came across what that broken bulb actually was while searching for something else in an old Ediswan catalog. And here you go:

"The brass flange of the connector, when screwed down firmly on to the nozzle, prevents any deviation from the perpendicular, which fault is quite opposed to the attractiveness of the otherwise elegant effect of a candelabra."

In other words, the light bulb sticks straight up. What a concept! :-)

Thanks for posting, Maria. Glad you solved your mystery.

I don't even want to know what the Sperm Candle effect is. . . .

Too bad it was broken, that's a cool early British lamp.
