Interesting. I've got some Siemens 35v 40w lamps with B22 caps which are a similar age to these.
As you said these look like old headlight lamps, but the voltage is strange.

Indeed. Commercial vehicles tend to use 24V, so not sure. Trains, perhaps..? They can have weird voltages for various things.

Cars used 6V batteries prior to 1955.
