    I have found 2 other sites (aside from lyser.se) that sell this bulb, but none of them appear to be able to ship to the United States. Does anyone know of a distributor that would be able to ship this product? Maybe a US-based Decoline distributor?

  3. Thanks…
    The console used to hold up a simple hatrack, and by a chance I noticed that the prepared screw hole had the same dimention that my “iron-cable” to the bulb ;-) A nice cozy and recycled solution.

    Btw, the bulb is a decoration globebulb from “Decoline” (E27 LED, 2100K 2W), http://lyser.se/shop/decoration-globlampa-e27-led-klar-2100k-2w.html
