Oooh, pretty.

And, if the ones on eBay are genuine, not as expensive as I would have guessed.

More than I’d be willing to pay for a light bulb, but perhaps for a piece of light-up sculpture…

There’s a company named DarkSteve that makes this style of bulb still:

These are nice, but technology has moved forward: we now have flameless lamps that look like real flames.

I am so getting one of these for my torchiere table lamp.

Whoa. I thought that price was in USD at first, not HKD. They cost, like, ten pounds? Man, I wish I’d known about these in time for Xmas shipping. Bookmarked for future use though. Cheers.

How well do they work as a night light?


#10

Hipsters rejoice.


#11

Better than as day lights.
