    That type of socket should not have any connection to mains supply.
    As far as I can see it is a ceramic base for an mr16 12v dichoric lamp.

    Sir Sanndeep. . . . . . .

    I also heartily agree on Sir Bluejets estimation of the type of bulb being utilized . . . . .it's a' looka like a' dis:

    Bi Pin Lamp:

    I only know of that lamp type being rated at up to 120VAC
    (Do note that THIS particular lamp set would be far above the "nite-lite" illumination level )

    REFERENCE:

    https://www.1000bulbs.com/category/120-130-volt-gy8-base-halogen-xenon-light-bulbs/

    BUT . . .with there being TWO lamps involved, that might also require either the use of a DVM in AC voltage test mode and read the voltage coming into the recessed pins of the the ceramic/porcelain hi temp socket.

    They might be wired in series. That would then work . . . . . with two series lamps . . . . . consuming 240VAC.

    OR a wall wart type of power supply plug in, MIGHT be involved in the supply of a lower voltage to power those lamps.

    It should be have its reduced voltage designated on its housing and give the voltage as well as current or KVA spec.

    Thaaaaasit . . . . . .
