Vintage Light Bulb Pendants
Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb back in 1879 which was the first commercially practical incandescent light. He began his work for electrical illumination in hope of replacing the gas and oil based lighting that was in use at that time. His invention was designed to use a carbon filament or strip that was coiled and connected to platina contact wires. Little did he know what an impact his invention would have. But the electric light bulb was not Thomas Edison’s only invention or patent. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life as we know it around the world. He invented the phonograph which led to the stereo and electronic devices that we have today. He invented the motion picture camera which led to the technological achievements we now see in the cinema. His inventions in electric light, utilities, sound recording and motion pictures started new world wide industries that drove mass communication, telecommunication, recording music and even batteries for the electric car. Edison holds over 1,000 related patents in the United States as well as many other patents in the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Thank you Thomas Edison.
