They are shown somewhat grouped together by model. If available the clear glass version is shown first followed by the milk glass, and the different sizes and some color variations also.

Milk glass, all marked STS 15V JAPAN; see others in other category;

Flame-like bulbs (from Alps box no. 9, shown after box 2 on page Alps)
Funny thing though, the markings are not all the same and it looks to me that they have used recuperated metal for the bases. Here is a list of the markings as far as I can make them out:
Red: ..AY BRITE 16V JAPAN and upside down stamped 15V
Red: STAY BRITE 15V JAPAN
Yellow: 15V JAPAN with an engraved B
Orange: A in a diamond plus 15V JAPAN
Orange: 3.8V JAPAN and stamped upside down 15V
Blue: Diamond plus 1?V JPAN plus stamped upside down 15V
Green: 3.8V

Similar bulbs are shown in Robert Brenner’s book “Christmas through the Decades”, pg. 111.
