The term "Type B lamp" actually refers to the type of bulb the lamp requires. Type B bulb is a small version with a smaller wattage than of your typical, general purpose lamp bulbs. They are often used in Tiffany-style lamps that require a smaller bulb. The lamps are named such because they are smaller, with a small bulb requirement but standard size bulb socket. You can buy B-Type bulbs at almost any lighting dealer.
