Victorian style Edison electric Globe $30 ea
The first electric light was made in 1800 by Humphry Davy (UK).Yes! It was those clever Georgians again! When Davey connected wires to his battery and a piece of carbon, the carbon glowed, producing light. This is electric arc light he publicly demonstrated between 1806 and 1809 (sources differ).
In1860, Sir Joseph Wilson Swan (UK) was determined to devise a practical, long-lasting electric light. In 1878, he demonstrated his new carbon filament electric lamps in Newcastle, England.
In 1877, Charles Francis Brush (US) manufactured some carbon arcs to light a public square in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. These arcs were used on a few streets, in a few large office buildings, and even some stores.
Edison eventually developed a carbon filament in an oxygen-free bulb that could glow for over 1500 hours, delivering commercially viable electric lighting.
These bulbs are reproductions of Edison’s Victorin bulb.
The bulb can be dimmed, and are 240 volt and 40 watts. Edison 27 fitting.
Also now available in 60 watts large Bayonet fitting.
