What is an E27 Socket?

This pic is actually not an E27 socket but a socket extender but work with me here. An E27 socket is a European socket. There is no difference in diameter from the sockets we use here in the states which is an E26 socket. In fact the only difference is the an E27 socket has one more thread to the screw in part. So, as long as the bulb you are using has a little bit of a neck, an American bulb will possibly work for you. May take a little trial and error but sometimes the European Bulbs are hard to find.
