Antique tungsten-filament lamp.
Modern incandescent bulbs all use tungsten filaments so I could have included just about any bulb here, but to make it a bit more interesting I'm showing an antique "MAZDA" bulb. No, it's not the car maker Mazda, it turns out that the name Mazda was a quality-mark used to designate high-quality tungsten bulbs in the early days of the lighting industry. (See this website for more details about the Mazda name.)
This bulb is displayed in my Bulb Stand along with many other examples of light bulbs.
