This unusual device is a deteurium arc lamp, a type of laboratory UV light source. This lamp is approximately the size of a standard octal tube, but has only three leads which are covered in thick insulation. There are two rectangular chambers in the center of the lamp, with small slits in the front. There appears to be a large heater coil in the outer chamber, which is open on both ends. The lamp has an argon-like ionization glow.
Special thanks to Giorgio Basile for identifying this device.
