Bona Fide Bulb
For the architectural purist: authentic carbon filament light bulbs. Made by John and Lynda Casey in their small workshop in rural Missouri. These replicas of Thomas Edison’s bulbs are made with filaments from carbonized cotton fibers instead of the more modern tungsten filaments found in cheaper reproductions. The Caseys have provided bulbs for several films and historic homes including the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Winter Estates Museum. Bulbs are available from their web site.
