Not a huge amount to say about this lamp.  This is a conventional reflector type incandescent lamp.  The main things to note about it would appear to be that despite the 60W rating - it's only consuming a touch over 40W, maybe someone marked the lamp incorrectly, and this is in fact a 40W model?

The lacquer coating on this lamp is somewhat unusual in that it covers the entire lamp, rather than just the face.  It is however worth noting that after a few hours of operation, it started to discolour significantly - not to mention smelling awful!  Seems the quality control could be a bit better.
