Default looking for a nice switch and lamp for my new tube amp

I am looking for a nice vintage lamp and a switch for my new amplifier project.
Probably I look wrong on google but was not able to find any

As an idea it could be something like the switch and the power lamp on this amp:


More stylish/vintage also welcome

Thanks for any idea

As strange as it sounds try Radio Shack. They still carry some of the old large lights.

For the switch you will have to get a large current rated type...2-5A switches are small now.

Try Surplus sales of Nebraska Surplus Sales of Nebraska .....they carry bunches of odd-ball switches & panel lamps....some from decades ago, military, aerospace & everything in-between. Some you would remember, some stir old memories that are fuzzy. All in all very unique stuff.

Try a ham radio swap meet, or surplus dealers. Any parts dealer or swap meet for land, air or sea vehicles should have some switches and indicators. Wrecking yards as well.

And, check out places that sell parts for tube guitar amps.
