"Philips Shape" A-line lamps?

  1. In the '80s and early '90s, Philips sold A-line incandescent lamps with a
    unique barrel-shaped envelope. I recall much being made of the shape in
    ads, though I don't recall what specific improvements were claimed, if
    any. Current-production Philips A-lines are shaped like everyone else's
    A-lines...

    ....anyone know why the change, and when it happened?
     
  2. I believe that Westinghouse sold these lamps before they were bought
    by Philips. The only advantage I know of is that looked different
    :)
    I thought I had seen these in Home Depot.
