Mini Vintage Light Strings 

Vintage Light Strings Details




"At Maialino, the Roman-style trattoria on Gramercy Park, they hover in groups of two and three. At the Standard Grill in the meatpacking district, they snake through the cafe, restaurant and patio. And at Recipe, a rustic spot on the Upper West Side, they cluster near the entrance as an enticement.  

Even at Weddings they mingle into the floral displays or just hang about all alone. Sometimes in great hordes too .  

They are not the latest cliques of beautiful people, but something quite old and plain: exposed-filament bulbs, reproductions of Thomas Alva Edison’s first light bulb. Their antique glow has spread like a power surge.

Whether in hip hangouts tapping into the popular Victorian industrial look - Steam Punk, or elegant rooms seeking to warm up their atmosphere, the bulb has become a staple for decorators and designers, in part because it emulates candlelight and flatters both dinner and diner."

So to keep up with the latest trends "The In Thing ..." brings you to compliment the 'Naked Bulb' Trend ...

20 sturdy globes - yes they are real glass!  NB Globes are approximately 2.5cm in diameter

Traditional looking Warm White light in 3* models

and all 4 models in Pure White too for all of you who like the cooler tones & a more 21st century feel 

Modern LED technology is used in an ingenious way that they still look like old fashioned filament bulbs

Battery operated - 3 x AA batteries, not supplied 


Choose from the 4 different models - 3 in Warm White & 4 in Pure White LED: 

The Edison - complete with etched lines on the bulb to diffuse the light & create greater effect

The Flame - an Victorian favorite as light bulbs were exposed in the chandelier as part of the feature

The Globe Only in Pure White LED - a totally round ball hence the name Globe.  These are just too cute and oh so versatile.   

Interesting note: in 1922 round globe lamps are discontinued by General Electric, in favor of the now popular cone shape.

The Glitz Globe - adding some 20th century glamour with a sprig of tinsel inside.  Not just for Christmas and adds so much more WoW factor

“Edison didn’t invent the light bulb, he improved upon the ideas of 22 other men who pioneered the light bulb before him. Edison simply figured out how to sell the light bulb.”
