Question

Will this 50-foot C7 cord hold the vintage GE lighted ice bulbs? The lights say C7, but I want to confirm since they’re vintage.

Answer:

I can’t guarantee it completely but C7 or E12 as a light bulb base specification has been standard for many years.

You should be fine.
Test your bulbs first and install them in a modern night light.  That will let you know if they’ll be compatible with our C7 cords!
