      Beautiful ! Have you look at 1st Dibs site for ideas for bulbs? https://www.1stdibs.com/search/?q=sputnik
    9. getthatmonkeyoutofme getthatmonkeyoutofme, 4 years ago
      yes i had a look... 1stdibs.... a bargain's place
    10. wildvke wildvke, 4 years ago
      Could be made by Lightolier (Manufacturer)
    11. getthatmonkeyoutofme getthatmonkeyoutofme, 4 years ago
      The lightoliers i have seen are with different bulbholders.... it's really a miracle who made this one

      I have seen some very beautiful bulbs online esp ebay I believe. Similar to these:

      What a fantastic light - worth effort for sure. You can enjoy the fact that at 1st Dibs it would probably cost you around $247833.

      First cleaning step done.....
      Strange... there is just one wire to each bulb and a single wire connected to the globe... seems to be current carrying electricity when switched on...?

      Fabulous MCM lamp! :)
    16. getthatmonkeyoutofme getthatmonkeyoutofme, 4 years ago
      seems to be 12V originally wired to an external transformer, because the body of the fixture acts as a conductor
      Miniature 12V (E10) lamp screw bases might work
