Hi there I have just bought this hanging lamp whose bulb connector type I cannot identify, I got it in Italy and the only thing I am sure is that the light bulb must be some kind of tube shape for it needs to go through a decorative casing that's no longer and no thicker than an index finger. I have included photos:

what the connector looks like

the decorative casing implying the restriction on the dimensions of the bulb

It looks like a G9 base for a halogen lamp.

looks like a older style fluorescent lamp that was used originally in exit fixtures. These were in use before the CFL spiral lamps.


It looks like a Dulux type fluorescent base.

  • You could improve this post immensely by providing links as examples, or including photographs of the bulbs you're talking about.
