Ok I think that should work. I was coming up with A14, which seems to be an Appliance bulb, and not in stock at the local HD, but I see it on Amazon. But this is a recessed skylight fixture in the bathroom, so perhaps a directional bulb like PAR14 you suggested is a better fit. In fact the original bulb has a reflector on the bottom side to make it more directional, unlike a conventional bulb.

Thanks. I'll try a PAR14.

EDIT: if PAR14 does not work, I could try something like this

I was going to say PAR16, but looking up dimensions seems to indicate Fritz is correct. There should be some light silkscreened product identification in the center of the lens, but those can fade with age.

the base says PLC 40W 120V CHINA 1L and there is a symbol like a 3/4 pie with 3-6 O'clock slice missing.

I would try to see if a PAR16 LED bulb would fit in the fixture. Take into consideration that small enclosures can concentrate heat and lead to shorter life of LED bulbs even though they run cooler.

12V makes no sense and it looks to me like it says 120V. Yes, that is a R14 bulb.

If they bother to stamp the power, voltage, country of origin on the base, they should also stamp the code, right?

That base is probably used for several different types of bulbs, so no.
