I've seen a few bulbs of the right type offered for sale online, but either the prices aren't reasonable or they aren't going to fit in the lamp's globe, or something else isn't right about them. I think I'm down to my last incandescent bulb for that lamp, so it will be time to check out what's available again soon. If anyone has a recommendation for a good 3-way mogul-based bulb that doesn't cost $50, I'd love to hear it.

The 3-way fluorescent bulb I tried didn’t have long enough of a neck to fit in my lamp.
