Lights: Boxed sets Osram
 

After sending some photos to the present Osram factory, the information I have received from Osram on the production of Christmas lights is the following:
“Christmas lights were manufactured before World War 2 in Factory A in Berlin. The lights shown below are from that period (probably 1935-1940), with the exception of “Osram 6”, which is from approx. 1970.
Around 1950 the manufacturing was resumed in the Factory B in Berlin. In 1985 manufacturing was transferred to Spandau Berlin and in 1993 it was shifted to Nove Zamky, Slowakei. There these lamps are still being manufactured today.
