Vintage Light Bulb with flowers inside
« on: March 09, 2008, 11:59:57 PM »
This bulb was a gift and it's marked Japan.  I was just wondering the age and purpose because when it is lit it is very, very bright.   Thank you for any information.

Ornamental neons date back to the early 20th, still being made. Yours is probably 1950s/60s and not worth much due to the poor condition.

Scrub that it is not a neon! Just a pretty bulb, but I have not seen a non-neon one before. Have a look here or post in their forum. http://www.bulbcollector.com/

Just bumped into this one again. Did you find out anything else about this?

Were there also filaments inside the flowers or is that just a optical illusion?

There are filaments as the center of the flowers.

Muramatso US patent 1937 number 2075744

Here is one boxed http://bulbcollector.com/gateway/Incandescent_Lamps/Figurals/Kokka_Type_Lamps/image/fg0024.jpg&img=&tt=

So made in Japan.... probably very rare, pity about condition.

Thank you for finding all the information on this!!  I had looked a long time ago and found nothing.

I haven't been online much since 11-20-12 when I had full knee replacement surgery.

I'm walking with a walker. I have to keep the leg up to keep the swelling down and I use a machine that bends it.  A physical therapist comes 3 times a week to do strength exercises.  It's way more painful than having my back fused.

Sorry to hear that, Decoqueen. But please, keep up with the exercises - I know they're dreadful but they'll do you a whole load of good in the long run, it will be worth all the pain in the end.

Can you do them at the same time as you try to play a computer game? When your attention is fully occupied by the game - because it's interactive - you're watching for a signal that tells you to react, then you react, then you're watching for the signal again... it fully occupies your working memory which means there's no room left in it to pay attention to the pain.

Recent research has proven that this is highly effective during painful medical proceedures such as this - the work published was on the pain that comes from having burns and skin grafts on them stretched. Even if you were to put on music you like - or felt might help would help to distract you.
(says she, who was thouroughly enjoying a bit of Deep Purple at the dentist this-morning - and it did help with the pain!)
