Help find this kind of bulb

Posted by alex9179 (My Page) on

This bulb came out of a picture light over an oil painting. It REALLY enhances the colors/mood and I'd like to find one like it.

It is a medium base and 25 watts.

I've been using google and google image, no luck. I'd appreciate any help!

RE: Help find this kind of bulb

This is a tinted 25w incandescent tubular (T) type lamp for a picture light. If it is 5" long it would be a T10.

The easiest way to buy one is to go to a professional electrical supply store but if you want to chance ordering it online here is a web site.

Here is a link that might be useful: picture light lamp

I think I got caught by how the tint had faded from the heat. A solid red bulb seemed too "red light district", hahaha! I was looking for more of a rose color.

Definitely worth a try. Thanks for the help.
