Default Re: Vintage Christmas Tree lights

Thank you both for your advice.

Although I could put the lanterns in series with the bells, they might look a bit odd, so I dare say I'll add some new wiring to the old lamp holders one day, if I can get to the connections without breaking them.

Although the bells are working fine and have replaceable bulbs, the lanterns' bulb is part of the lantern and cannot be replaced once they blow, without wrecking the lantern.

Time to get the soldering iron out with some new wire and make a new string of old lights- IF I ever get the time!
