Default Re: Crompton 60W bulb

Thinking about it the coloured lacquered fireglow lamp was probably one of the most widely used coloured lamps of the electric fire era, namely the 1950s and 60s.

I pulled this Belling 'Adam' fire, Cat No 743B off the tip many years ago. I believe it's quite a late example of a much older design that remained unchanged for decades.
It still gets used from time to time just to take the cold air off the room.
2 X 60W lamps are used, the heat of which creates a warm air flow that turns the deflector wheels. The patterned glass completes the effect. J.
