Girard Sudron Candles

Swan Lamps manufactured by General Lamps are beautifully crafted chandelier candle lamps. They light up palaces, stately homes, churches, cathedrals and castles throughout Europe.

Swan lamps have been developed by General Lamps and are compatible with Girard Sudron Grand Siecle (GS) candle lamps. Girard Sudron no longer manufacture incandescent chandelier candle lamps, they do offer some halogen and LED alternatives, please contact our sales office if you would like to make an enquiry for these types.

Swan chandelier candle lamps are constructed using a superior manufacturing technique. This means that our lamps have an average rated life of 1,500 hours compared to 1,000 hours that was previously offered.  We have done this by employing a technique developed in the 1920’s for the production of vacuum lamps.

All of our Swan decorative chandelier lamps are vacuum lamps due to their low wattage. A historical problem with vacuum lamps has been the formation of water vapour and residual gases within the envelope, this limits the life of the lamps as it reacts with the filament. To overcome this we coat the filament with a phosphorous substance, the phosphor reacts with any water vapour and residual gases within the envelope of the lamp to vaporize and clean up any unwanted gases or vapour within the envelope.

Swan lamps are easily identified when browsing our range of chandelier candle lamps by the Swan Logo that is visible in the top right hand corner of the lamp image.
