That's a cool lamp!
when I saw the thumb, I thought it was a newer T8 that lost vacuum!

My very first word was LIGHT!

well it is certainly a survivor!i only noticed the damage when i took down the light to better secure it.i put in a random modern tube when i finished.looks like the glass bits came from the press area.how it broke there and didnt leak is a real mystery.

the fixture was installed by one of the previous owners.safari stated it was not factory installed.
the mh is a 99 and the date on the thinlite is 86.
maybe the tube died and someone stopped in some podunk with a family run hardware store.seen some really old stuff nos in i few of those.
