Lights: Boxed sets Philips
 

I have contacted Philips for information on old Christmas lights, but they have responded that Philips has not produced Christmas lights since many years and therefore are sorry they cannot give any information in this respect.

Some replacement bulbs are available thru Aamsco. They handle all European products distributed in the US. The # is 1 800 221 9092 or you can call the Philips Lighting Consumer Support Group at 1-800-555-0050.
