light bulb

Let’s take a little trip back in time with the Department of Luminous Lighting. Redditor boomboomsaIoon shared a photo of this awesome light bulb containing a neon rose that they find in the attic at work.

“It’s an Aerolux neon bulb, the light rose model. Aerolux bulbs were manufactured from 1938 to 1974, and this one is estimated to be from the 1940s.“

This photo shows what the rose looks like in a working Aerolux lamp:
