Forget the light shade with this Edison style light bulb. The classic squirrel cage filament as in the Original Edison bulb is a pleasure to look at. This ST18 shaped bulb also features a small glass tip on top, which was how those bulbs were sealed back in the 1800's. The 60 watts of powerful dark penetrating rays will brighten up your work or personal space and enhances the mood of the entire room. The perfect Edison bulb for any exposed socket lamp with a standard medium (E26) base.
