Restoration Hardware's "1920s German Light Bulb Voltage Tester Bar" sells for $2000. It's a replica of a century-old refitted German lightbulb voltage tester salvaged from a German factory, and it oozes Weimar decadence. It weighs 265lbs. 1920s German Light Bulb Voltage Tester Bar (via OhGizmo) READ THE REST

I would imagine it's an old Integrating Sphere (Ulbricht Sphere) used to make flux measurements, rather than a voltage tester.
An integrating sphere (also known as an Ulbricht sphere) is an optical component consisting of a hollow spherical cavity with its interior covered with a diffuse white reflective coating, with small holes for entrance and exit ports. Its relevant property is a uniform scattering or diffusing effect. Light rays incident on any point on the inner surface are, by multiple scattering reflections, distributed equally to all other points. The effects of the original direction of light are minimized.

it looks really awkward in the way that if the door was all the way open it might fall over from being off balance
