Made by the lemon logo manufacturer. I don't know the name of the manufacturer. It is 400 watt NOS. I like the enlarged middle glass envelope.

Nice historic example. The lemon logo belongs to the Ukranian lamp manufacturer PZGRL.

Until a year or two ago they were stil making lamps but now their website is gone, I am afraid they may have closed down. Later the company was known as GRL Ukraine, mainly making incandescent and LED filament retrofits.

I think yours might be quite old because in the beginning they marked the bulbs with a kind of red ink that did not stick very well, Dmitri has one of these on his Russian lighting forum at https://old-lighting.ru/ru/content/dnat-400-4-pzgrl

I have a later model with embossed cap marking at http://www.lamptech.co.uk/Spec%20Sheets/D%20SHP%20GRL%20DNaT400-4.htm

Thanks for the link to your website, you have some very special old Soviet lamps there! I am intrigued about your МЭЛЗ ДРШ120. It says 1983 but this looks like very early British mercury lamps of the 1940s. Were they really made until so recently in Russia? Is the frosting on the outside of the glass?

Yes, James, this lamp 1983 year. It lamp very high pressure.
The document says that she intended for copy machine and laboratory work.
The purpose of creating this lamp is not clear to me, but in fact, this lamp is a variation of the DRK-120 lamp.
https://istok2.com/photo/1609.jpg
Burner of this lamp was placed in a flask comparable to an filament lamp size of 300 watt. Etching with acid is really was done outside. If you damp the flask, you can clearly see its burner. But not for long.
(I still have 1 or 2 lamps. But they are difficult to transport. The burner is fixed only at the bottom.)
It should be noted that the first (possibly trial) versions of these lamps from 60's were called the SVD-120. (Very High Pressure on Eng.)

I know this isn’t relative to the post but FYI you are misspelling “Ukrainian” in both your post and in the title of the lamp you posted at your website.

In those days, the territory of Ukraine was part of the USSR and she was called the USSR (in this case U - was not the Union but Ukraine).
Until about 2005 (more precisely i cannot say) i saw their emblem made by the classical method for those years - by stamping on the base. But since 2005 there has been an "upgrade". What it was, it is difficult to say. Perhaps some of the old machines were replaced by modern Chinese. If this question is interesting, is need can ask my Ukrainian comrade in more detail. After that, they made other variation of emblem and began to made her on flask. She kept well until the first good warming-up of the lamp, and then rubbed off without residue like dry powder from finger movement.
On old lamps also had emblem on glass. But basically they to wash off easily after a long, raw storage.
I recently asked about their production. It seems that they are really bankrupt and the company has ceased to exist.
In fact, only their name remained from their former production in recent years.

Looks like a GE Lucalox knock-off. Typical for the eastern (communist) bloc countries.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
