Retro and vintage light bulbs that replicate the old fashioned filament bulbs as invented by Thomas Edison. These antique lamps and bulbs are based on original designs that date from the early days of electric lighting at the beginning of the 20th century. The stylish designs and authentic detailing with looped or squirrel cage filaments create a historic traditional touch to lighting schemes for period homes and restoration projects. Vintage and retro style bulbs have a subtle warm glow and look gorgeous in traditional or industrial style light fittings where the bulbs are on show. Many of these bulbs can be controlled by using a dimmer switch allowing you to set the mood and create the right ambience.
