This the bulb am looking for seems hard to find have to call Ferguson on Monday , that’s a bathroom place ,
however I have. 4 inch bulb I showed you all in there now , it’s flowing awsome no constant column .
thanks for the advice Keith , I have a dimmer on it but it’s almost full blast doesn’t seem to be getting to hot , hope the base can handle a higher watt , but so far so good . If I can find a place to order these. 60 w I’ll let u know
Hey bob y,
I'm looking at this picture and I realize; this is a ceramic base not a standard metal base. I should have realized before. That being said, I would not recommend using anything other than what the tag inside says on a ceramic base. The chances of the extra heat damaging a ceramic base that costs that much is a risk that I wouldn't take myself. I apoligize for the misleading information for your particular base!

O wow dang , the thing is it worked though . So what about this I have other 16 in base , the normal ones from China , however the 4 in bulb won’t fit in that , may I ask where you get your bulb that fits from .
maybe I can swap the globes and use the usa lava in the China base with the 3 in 60w bulb , and the 40w bulb in the ceramic base .
I hope one day of using a 60 w bulb didn’t do to much damage , and no worries I should have been more clear . I ended up keeping the lamp . Thanks for your help . Hope I can find this bulb .
Update the 40 w bulb is back in , the lamp seems to be acting like it Before I switched bulbs , flow kidna sucks but ain’t the worst .
am not done trying it improve the flow , maybe this globe on a new base with a 60 w , so if it breaks the base of a China lamp I can buy for cheap who cares . I’ll keep this updated if people would like .
thanks for the info and help , to anyone reading this if you go past the recommended watt just make sure it’s on a lamp you don’t care so much about , my lamp seems ok though thankfully , Keith thank you for everything don’t worry about not realizing what type base it was , I should have been more clear . Thanks all
