For brief use for a photo, look for a heavy duty lamp socket, ideally a ceramic one. They are in less demand now, but you should be able to find something at a hardward store. Then wire it up with a heavy duty cord by mounting it on a metal box. It only draws about 8 amps, so any normal circuit should work. Then get the shot all set up and ready to go, and then light it up to take the photo. You may need more than one try, because the exposure is complicated. You may want to try to do a group of exposures and make a HDR combine to best show it. I do not know about the value of it, but a photo of it working could be useful if you choose to try to sell it. I love cool old stuff like this.
And it is unlikely, but there is a chance the whole bulb will explode while you are trying it. Be prepared by staying away, and by wearing safety glasses. And I am not joking about this part. Many of the modern light fixtures for photography have metal screens to catch the glass when the bulb blows. The modern bulbs do run hotter and work differently, but you have no idea about the condition of this very old bulb.
