Description EVEREADY 2331 Automobile Lamp bulb in a cardboard sleeve. The cardboard sleeve is labeled as (A), while the bulb is (B). The bulb is slipped inside a cardboard sleeve with two open ends. The sleeve is printed with red, blue, and white. Two of the sides are decorated with graphics and large text, such as EVEREADY MAZDA AUTO LAMPS" or "EVEREADY ALL-METAL KIT SPARE LAMPS INSURE SAFETY." The two remaining sides feature only fine text conveying instructions and product information . One of these text sides lists the patent as 1926-1944. The lightbulb itself is fairly plain. Several wires can be seen through the transparent glass, and the base is made from a brass-coloured metal. Text on the top of the bulb reads "PREFOCUSSED EVEREADY MAZDA 2331 32 & 32CP 6-8V." A rim encircles the base, containing three holes.
