Looks very close to an American 300w-500w lamp in shape!

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I was thinking the same Dave! Its remarkable to see the similarities between Soviet and American lamps despite the great separation both physically and formerly also politically. It seems that GE had close technical links with the Moscow Electric Lamp Plant since the pre-soviet era, which were continued until as late as the 1970s. Several times GE sold its technology and lampmaking machinery to MELZ. As such many Russian lamp designs seem to be very closely based on American GE equivalents.

Is there anything embossed at the pressed stem area?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Rjluna, I don't know what you are saying, could you explain what you mean? What does 'embossed' mean?

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
