Real blown glass bulb with a yellow metal “protector” paying homage to the classic “anywhere” work light. It is interesting to note that at a later date Ingo Maurer who designed the famous “flying bulb lights” used this light as an inspiration and did a paired down simple version utilizing plastic rather than glass for the actual glass bulb part.
