Best Lightbulb Clipart Images
This is a cute collection of Lightbulb Clipart Images! The light bulb is one of the most important inventions of all time. Without it, we would be stuck in darkness! Thomas Edison had to figure out how electricity works and how to keep it contained. His breakthrough was called an electric lamp or a light bulb. It’s made up of two pieces – a metal wire filament that glows when electricity runs through it and a glass container that contains mercury gas which makes the filament last longer than other materials like carbonized paper or bamboo filaments. The first patent for this invention was filed on January 27, 1880! The free Light Bulb Clip Art Images below would be fun to use in your creative Steampunk projects, or perhaps to illustrate a great idea on a blog post, and they are of course fun for Junk Journals too. They are hard to find, but I am slowly building this collection, so be sure and stop back later to see what else I come up with. These are all 300 dpi high resolution graphics.
This is a fantastic looking Old Fashioned Light Bulb Clipart illustration. This one was scanned from a Circa 1909 Invoice! It’s pretty classic looking with it’s round glass shape and simple metal base. Next up, we have another cute lightbulb image. This one is a bit more primitive looking than the one above, it’s only just slightly more detailed than line art really. The glass part is slightly taller and narrower than the one above it. The filament inside reminds me of an old wire rug beater, it has a similar shape to it.
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Shown above is another marvelous looking old fashioned, or old school, electrical bulb. This one is pointing downwards, perhaps it was used in a ceiling fixture or a chandelier. You could of course flip the image the other way if you need to for your specific project. This one has an interesting wire configuration inside of it, it looks quite complex. This picture was scanned from a Circa 1910-1912 Antique Printers book that I recently added to my collection. I think it’s pretty cute!
I hope you enjoyed this little collection of Clip Art Lightbulb Images. You might also enjoy checking out our Steampunk Image Archives Here, or our Electric Fan Images HERE, for more marvelous vintage pictures like the ones in this post.
