Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your excellent service both from the website and from the staff I spoke to over the phone in your Hammersmith and High Street Kensington branches. I ordered a pale blue Roberts radio (RD50) and it was dispatched that day and arrived the next day. It is very rare to get service like that these days!
Squirrel cage bulbs are ideal for use in vintage lighting or applications that require period lighting.
They are also used on film sets when filming 1930's period scenes.
Edison bulbs are also used in reproduction light fittings, so that the bulb is in keeping with the period of the fixture.
More recently Squirrel cage light bulbs have been adopted by the fast growing Victorian and steam power influenced "Steampunk" culture as an appropriate light source for this fashion and architectural style.
