On the 21st of October 1879 in a laboratory in Menlo Park near New York:
After 45 hours an electric light filament bulb dies out.
Thomas Alva Edison is conscious of the fact to have developed the first useable electric light bulb.
In 1881 at the World Exhibition of Paris, rightly judged to be an «...epochal invention...», it has changed the life and the rhythm of the people.
It is so self-evident, that we will be conscious of it, when we, in the true sense of the word, are sitting in the dark, whether, because there is a power failure or the battery does not work, or if it is only defective.
The oil lamps are homage to one of the most brilliant inventors of the last century with more than 1.000 patents, who has created also the first public electric power station of the world besides the Phonograph: Thomas Alva Edison.
A homage to Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the electric light.
Packed in an attractive wooden box,
circa 18 cm high
Borosilicate glass, long-life wick, funnel
The light bulb is specially produced with frosted glass, with stainless steel socket. Filled with oil the frosted glass will turn clear. The bigger versions are in borosilicate glass – a very high-grade and heat-resistant glass without bubbles and streams inside for a perfect quality.
The first real lamp.
The electric light bulb -
symbol for inventiveness, invention,
flashes of inspiration -
newly put in a holder.
Struck with a match.
but emotionally charged.
A classic subject,
new and timelessly interpreted.
For hours of contemplation.
