Dunno if this info has been posted before, but here are some old form charts for those of you who might discover or score and old luminaire and want to know what form it is.  These aren't complete but cover some forms you might not already be familiar with.

GE Victory Lighting



GE Novalux Form 6 (variations)



Detail of series autotransformer (used before cutout discs were invented.)



GE Novalux Duoflex street light.  (The upper lamp would light when the lower lamp burned out.)



Later model incandescents.

Here's one to keep an eye out for.  GE's Form 46 with an asymmetrical radial wave reflector.  Perhaps the predecessor to the admiral's cap?  Image taken from GE's 1938 catalog.

THANK YOU!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy 

Do you have any Westinghouse catalogs?

Also do you have any 60s-70s models catalog?

Jace,

I wish I had some Westy catalogs.  The GE catalogs and product ID sheets were documents I found on the web that had been scanned to PDF files or jpegs.

Some of these items are uploaded to the "X Files" folder on my web site.  The "X Files" are a user browsable folder where I put stuff that people might want to poke around and look at, but aren't generally found in active folders.  Anyone wanting to see what's there, or would like me to upload reference materials that can be accessed, can go to:

Yeah. It is the all time classic for refractor incandescents of its time.  Not that I don't like acorns and teardrops, but the Form 79, Spherolite and other equivalents were the mainstay residential refractor globe incandescents.

Now if I could just lay my hands on a Form 109...
