Beautiful vintage look, but had to return

I loved these bulbs when I got them in the mail. They are beautiful, oversized vintage bulbs. The filaments are stunning when lit, and the amber tint made for a unique design element in my bathroom.
Sadly, I had to send them back. Why?
I ordered two boxes of these for my light fixture. Of the 12 bulbs I received, one of them was broken, one was an incorrect color (clear rather than amber) and four of them had poorly made connectors that I doubted would stand up to regular use. The clincher though was the heat.
These bulbs get HOT. They will burn you if you try to touch them while lit, or even shortly after turning them off. This wouldn’t be a problem if it was just a few bulbs, but my vanity has 8 bulbs, all in a row. I was really worried that they would overheat due to their proximity, especially in the summer, so back to Amazon they went.
I really wish these were LED. They would have stayed with me despite everything if they just didn’t get so hot.
