I work at a film / video dealer and the downstairs studio was doing a clean up. They pulled 3 of these Videssence lights from the bottom of a box and said they were going to toss them. I saved them from their demise of course  :P

 

Seems like they are missing their 5/8 mount and what appears to be the 120 V power cables. 

 

Has anyone every used one before? Does anyone know their value or model name? They are in surprising quality for being buried in a box.

Yes the 5/8 mount is missing you can use a clamp or better buy a spigot with screw, a long screw one or drill more the hole.
The lamp seems an old type of fluorescence, i think don't have the edison screw socket but a sort of baionet of two little or four iron pin, so i think you maybe need to replace it with the same model that fit in the case.
The cable it's easy to find it's like the pc ones but take a look inside to see if it's a sort of integrated ballst or if it's direct to line.
If it's direct to line you can try to change the lamp holder with a edison screw holder maybe and use a CFL better if kinoflo one becoming a sort of CFL open face.
You can play a lot with it modifing little cheap things.
