AMAZING NEW OLD STOCK! Genuine 100 Year Old Original Mazda Lamps.

We have a modest quantity of genuine B.T.H Mazda 20W 105V Lamps in a B22 base fitting. They work absolutely fine from a 110v ac adaptor. A really super genuine lamp most of which are around 100 years old, yes that's 100 YEARS OLD!

We test before dispatch to ensure the little beauties are working. A lovely item for a collectors of vintage lamps. Lamps date from 1911. Original packaging is in good condition and includes original and very quaint manufacturers tips and advice.

These lamps really can be used. however, we would advise running with an appropriate transformer to reduce the voltage to less than 100V. In this way the life expectancy will be increased dramatically (assuming you want to install and actually use them for lighting purposes).
