Ebay win for £5.50, seen one sell for £93 before! An interesting vintage neon lamp with a spiral shaped electrode, presumably just used as an indicator or night light?

In my opinion if one electrode is much shorter than the other, it is a polarity indicator, otherwise that is a beehive-glow lamp for spare-lighting.

I used to have one of these, never seen any around of late, though

I don't disapprove of LED's for domestic and other indoor use, I just don't like them for street lighting.

I wonder if I'll find one of these things on one of my trips to abandoned places....
