Saw a bunch of used fixtures at a dealer. Here is a link to an image of one:

I'd consider buying a few and I think I have an application for them right now, but if globes are expensive or impossible to find, then I'd have a bunch of boat anchors. The owner bought them on speculation at an auction and doesn't know what they are called or used for. Will these do anything that a well maintained and focused ellipsoidal won't?

A Couple of them were been used as 'soft' follow spots on a show I was working on during the summer, they were okay but nothing special. The gaffer said that they quite delicate (they get easily bent out of shape) and the follow spot guys found them harder to target than a normal lens light.
