Comments:A lovely old MBW lamp! One of the best woods glass BLB mercury lamps made. This lamp also features an 'oxygen fuse' a tiny filament in series with the arc tube. In the event of the outer jacket breaking, this oxidises and cuts power to the arc. Thus preventing the danger of short wave UV exposure. A common risk in the applications where these lamps are used, especially in portable fixtures.
