2 Antique RailRoad Brass Oil Lamp Wall Sconces C1919

Here is a wonderful, gorgeous pair of antique brass & glass railroad car oil lamp wall sconces. I suspect these wall lights were made by Adlake, but cant be certain. They are definately old; please note the patent date of 1919 that is stamped around the outside of the burner. The sconces are in excellent condition, are heavy, well made pieces and measure approximately 7 3/4 inches tall without the glass chimney, 12 1/2 tall to the top of the glass chimney and a total of 16 inches to the top of the smoke bell. The glass chimneys still have the word, Pyrex, etched into each piece. These oil lamps are complete with wall mounting brackets and smoke bell attachments. A very rare find indeed.

This very simple design would likely have been used to light the caboose or some other service crea, but what makes this one so special is its slightly smaller than usual size; about 11 inches tall, and the fact that it is made of copper. a rare, unusual and really great gift idea.
