    I have seen similar period light bulbs before, however, the ones that I have seen have been the normal light bulb shape. The one thing that the Nazi's were good at was propaganda andthis is a propaganda piece for the home. I have seen period paper swastika lampshades, you'll have to keep an eye out for one!

    Pat when the bulb is turned on the swastika glows. This kind of bulb was popular in the 30's and 40's I have seen them with old cartoon's. Popeye was very popular .can't tell you if this one is real.

    There was a guy selling these on eBay earlier this year. They were sold as modern 'novelty' items!

    Put the bulb in one of these Lampions and I bet it would light it up -

    I would get an old Bakelite lamp holder and mount that on a wooden plinth.

    Cheers, Ade.

    What does it say on the side?Kris.
    I think it says: 'National 220....'

    It looks like modern glass and filament to me, but it is unusual
    in that it has a socket base, and not the threaded
    screw-in type like we normally see.........
