The lamp with yellow base is the FLS from the soviet clip light

It resembles a Philips lamp (shown below for comparation) in its overall shape, but is slightly different :

The phosphor is way thicker. The lamp is EOL and rectifies, but the blackening is not seen untill it is powered up or viewed against light

The connection between tubes is thinner and located farther from the end

The glow switch contacts are different (IU shaped), polyester cpacitor with green coat is used

Lamp pins and glow switch are connected by soldering and not crimping

The lamp is EOL
