Vintage Light Bulbs from Satco

Everything old is new again!

Many scientists were dabbling with an "electric light" in 1879, but it was Thomas Edison who really got it all together with the first practical light bulb. And, amazingly, Edison bulbs, as they are commonly known, really haven't changed much since then. In fact of all Edison's inventions - the stock ticker, the phonograph, the telegraph - Edison bulbs are the only one that remain in general use today. Back then it was quite amazing. But now, Edison light bulbs have become a popular interior design element—one that almost by itself defines an entire era.
