this HPS lamp was invented in 1964 by General Electric and is one of the first few prototypes saved from the GE Research Lab. It may be the only surviving prototype of its kind.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3vAjb_Du6Q

Nice video and lamp-don't blame you for not trying to run the lamp.Since the wattage isn't marked-can't determine what ballast to use anyway.
