Globe bulbs are identified by their large size and round shape. They are most often used as decorative light bulbs, especially in commercial spaces, where they provide a bright light and distinctive look.
As they are larger than standard bulbs, they are available with only the most common cap types: bayonet cap (BC) and Edison screw (ES).
Look out for antique style LED globes, which contain an LED filament designed to mimic the look of vintage incandescent bulbs. Those with a bronze finish provide eye-catching decorative lighting and a bright, even light.
