Where to find this lightbulb?

We have an older home and our front porch light burnt out. There is actually two of them, and I really like this style of light, so I want to replace it with this one.

Does anyone know what kind of light this is? I did some research and couldn't find anything like this.


First post BTW. Really pumped about these forums as I do a lot of DIY. Just started restoring an old home!

Not quite AS cool but would probably do the job if I replaced them both. I knew after all of my research too it was an unusual light. Just surprised i bought the house with both of them working and mine died shortly after we moved in.

Isn't one of the original Edison bulbs still working in a fire station somewhere?

Livermore, California. They say they have proof it was installed in 1901. Not sure if it's still burning but wouldn't be surprised. They thought it burnt out once, many years ago, but discovered it was a problem with the power supply.
