Your self-ballasted MV lamp, is a preheat HID lamp, having two filaments near each electrode inside the arctube, that during turning on, preheats the mains electrodes, and after several seconds, a bi-metal switch disconnects them, and strikes the arctube. Our 230V self-ballasted MV lamps, have the same starting electrode as the regular MV lamps.
Here is a video of one of my SBMV lamps in action.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230V, 50hz country.

So I'm guessing that's what the slight glow on each electrode was before the arc strike? And why there are two leads on each side of the arc tube? And yes, I can see the bimetal reed switch towards the bottom of the support -- Thanks for that info! Learning more about the lamps I have is definitely a big reason why I signed up here.

No. In your lamp, if you hot restrike it, you won't see any bluish glow like in my lamps, before the hot restrike, as your lamp haven't any starting electrodes, as this is insufficient for your 120V 60hz mains. The lamp will be dark for several mins and then the ballasting filament will light up with the preheating filaments, when the bi-metal closes, and the starting process will be repeated.
The mains in Israel, is 230V 50hz, so the usual starting electrode is sufficient to start the arctube in SBMV lamps here.

I believe he meant the preheat glow, rather than hot restrike. I'd like to see one of these in action again, there are videos out there but this machine doesn't handle Flash well.

Say NO to DICTATORSHIP in the form of bulb/tube/ballast bans !!

Video of a 120V self-ballasted MV lamp in action if anyone interested.
@michilumin: You will see the filaments inside the arctube, glowing, and after several second, they will turned off, and the discharge will strike in the arctube.
