Love it! Jimbo these are pretty easy to rewire and and convert back if need be. I was able to rewire mine to hold the small appliance bulb.

That's the one Jim, I use these in my copper Astro's when running globes that overheat on 40w.

If it's small bayonet bulb, I would say B15 socket (other may confirm this).

25w is OK for short time use, but if you want to use it hours, 15w is safer..

Do not buy frosted bulb, because you won't be able to see reflections of the filament on the walls.

Astralav - many, many thanks for the head's up on the bulb.  I am going to play it safe and order a half dozen or so.  I checked the bulb that is currently being used and can't locate any wattage details anywhere on it.  I will most definitely error on the side of caution with this one and make sure I don't exceed 25 watt.

Now, what would be tremendously helpful to this Yank would be for someone to kindly specify the type of bulb I should get.  I know what to get for US lamps (A15, R20, etc.), but the British equivalent obviously has a different code.  It is a bayonet style bulb (i.e. you push the bulb into the socket and give it a slight twist to seat it).

Jim, be sure to use the proper bulb (max 25w, but it run well with a 15w too).

Critter, I used to dislike glitter too. That was before I got my 1st Living Jewel. Now I barely use any lava, and my collection is nearly exclusively glitter.

LOL Jim you never know. But if I end up with a glitter or two some time that strand glitter will be my down fall....it is much more interesting to me than the other types. Of course being in one of these amazing copper bases is a plus. Also I think I would prefer for it to move slowly. The last glitter bottle I saw that really got my attention was a Lunar bottle with 1" squares of glitter in it and it's lazy tumbling flow nearly had me. Gerhard was selling it. Probably should have bought it.

Astralav - I found this and other assorted British copper goodies in Weebotech's closet.  :-)

The color strips are turquoise blue and yellow.

Critter, from another thread... "I have never been into glitter but I gotta admit the strand glitter is really sharp looking"

I sense a new glitter lover is being born.    Come to the bright sparkly side Critter, come...
