A 150w Philips opal lamp with diffused front, I'm not sure if it is a mushroom lamp as it looks more bulb shaped than the mushroom shape we know, it is rated at 240v 150w with e27cap and internal metal heat reflector on the inner stem.

Nice lamp! It's probably designed for base up ceiling light fixtures with the heat shield.

Lamp made August 1962.

Philips marketed these lamps under the brand ‘Superlux’. They were indeed described as ‘directional’ mushroom lamps offering a diffused 70 degree downward beam whilst retaining a fair amount of upward illumination. It was offered at a lower price than wide beam reflector lamps, as an economic alternative. In the UK these were sold in 60, 100 and 150W ratings.

As a kid I always wanted such lamps because I thought these are HID, similar to the ML-R lamp which had similar nice white light.

My parents were "funny" about mercury and sodium back then, but I still collected the lamps anyhow. I got my first mercury lamp in 1978 when I was 14, it was one of those [url=https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=search&cat=0&pos=1&pid=141213Thorn-Mazda-Atlas MB/U's with the frosted arc tube.[/url]

I agree with Lee, this is definitely a Superlux although not specifically marked as such. Both this and the K-Argenta and one of the Comptalux reflector lamps I recall...all had this same K-70/K-75 bulb. I loved this bulb shaspe and when I was a little kid, <7 years old, I called Argenta-K's, "Funny Pearls"...as you do!

One thing Gavin...what sort of disc does it have...by the date of 1962, I would assume it is the shiny "pie with a slice out of it" disc?? Later came a matt disc with a parallel sided slot and the edges of the slot bent down, it is the more common.

Oh, made at the Weert Plant. Note that this plant has been demolished, sometime between 2009 and 2017.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!
