Modern GE lamp possibly? They still make 100w clear mercury lamps.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Honestly, I have no clue. It's possible it's a GE, I guessed based on the brass base and the gold at the arc tube crimps, looks similar to my 50w clear Phillips.

Neat, I have a Philips clear 100w merc from July 1985 (it's a Lifeguard and I got it from streetlight98). It's pretty interesting to see the difference 10 years made here.

Interesting lamp, its burner looks like a standard 125 W arc tube from the company's Turnhout (Belgium) HID factory. This gold coating at the burner extremities is also typical of Philips' 50 W HPL lamps that were produced there. I guess this coating was applied to the present burner so as to ensure that all the dosed mercury is evaporated at the lower input power (100 vs. 125 W).

I noticed that lots of low wattage clear mercury lamps have the arctube ends coated while coated ones don't.

yes, thermal losses are relatively greater in smaller arc tubes and sometimes measures have to be taken to ensure that the cold-spot temperature remains high enough for the intended operating pressure.

'95-China were some of the less-quality Philips lamps, or so I have heard. Neat save nevertheless!
