Holy Cow, thats a great looking display.


I see some intersting beacons in there that I have never seen before, in the last picture top right row second from the middle divider going towards the right with the wierd shaped dome, thats a first for me.


I wish I had something like all of these to display and be proud of....

Thanks for the compliments. That different light in the last picture, 2nd row, is a NOS Sireno Mity Lite Model 166 with 2 rotating (back to back) reflectors.

Nice! Nice! and a great display. A lot of the early Whelen and Federal beacons in there. I am glad you exhibit some of the flash shields on the Fireball and other teardrop lights, too. .

Did vitalite make a vitalflash model, and what was the model number if so?
No, they did not and the Vitalite was about the same price as a FlashBall.

You have a very nice collection.
I see that you have an odd little light among the American lights, an Eisemann (Bosch) RKLE 90.
Does anybody have info on the Eiseman light in the last picture? Where used, vintage, and worth? It's in beautiful shape.


I paid $39.00 for it a few months ago.


Thx.

The Eisemann light was the first revolving light with a reflector in Europe to what I know.


I think the Auer EBL with a revolving fresnel lens was about a year earlier.


The Eisemann came about 1956 and the competitor Hella about 1959.


Eisemann was a part of Bosch and the lights was later renamed to Bosch.


Your light with chrome lens ring and I assume with a 45 Watt bulb would be from late '60s.


It has probably been in use in Germany but it was also used in most countries in the western Europe that was using blue at that time.


Sweden did not use these lights at that time in blue because we used red until 1969. When we started to use blue in 1970 the Eisemann/Bosch had a 55 Watt halogen bulb.

You are correct. This light has an incandesant bulb. Any idea how collectable, and worth in really nice shape?
Thanks.


Dan

There are many collectors in Europe that collects these lights. Eisemann/Bosch lights from the '60s seems not to be as common as Hella lights.


They are not rare so I will think that the price you paid is quite acceptable. Maybe a little higher if it is in very good condition.


What speed has the motor? 105, 160 or 192 rpm?

That's the way I figure it. Couldn't display 100+ bars on my one beacon wall.


Sometimes I'll pay more for a beacon than many guys would pay for a lightbar.


The only bars I have are a very nice R/C 24 Aero, and a new amber strobe/halogen/LED Vista. I want to sell both.
